** Due to endless litigation between the producers and Kevin [=McClory=], this would be the last Eon Bond film where Blofeld and SPECTRE would appear as BigBad[=/=]GreaterScopeVillain and NebulousEvilOrganisation respectively until the 2015 movie ''Film/{{Spectre}}''.
** It was also this for classic Bond, since Sean Connery only agreed to one additional movie with UA boss David Picker, and, minus [=McClory=]'s ''Never Say Never Again'', refused to deal with any part of the franchise ever again [[note]]or at least until the 2005 ''Film/FromRussiaWithLove'' video game, which bridged the gap between Creator/PierceBrosnan and Creator/DanielCraig. [[/note]] EON had to recast the role for the third time in a row, going with Roger Moore, who was considered originally.

Of note, Sean Connery, who was done with the series after ''Film/YouOnlyLiveTwice'', was lured back to playing Bond [[MoneyDearBoy thanks to a massive paycheck.]] He used half of it to establish a charity to support deprived children in Edinburgh. When asked if he would ever play the character after this, Connery replied "Never again." This later served as [[HilariousInHindsight inspiration]] for the title of the unofficial Bond film ''Film/NeverSayNeverAgain''.

''Diamonds Are Forever'' is the seventh ''Film/JamesBond'' film, starring SeanConnery in his last (and least regarded) Eon series appearance. After Bond kills Blofeld in the opening sequence, he is assigned to an international diamond-smuggling case. A huge amount of diamonds have been stolen from the South African mines and two CampGay assassins are killing everyone in the smuggling ring ladder, rung by rung. Bond infiltrates the group by managing to kill smuggler Peter Franks and poses as him in an effort to find out what is going on. He discovers that the head of the smuggling ring is none other than a not-so-dead-after-all Ernst Stavro Blofeld, who found a way to create doubles of himself through plastic surgery. The diamond smuggling is revealed to be part of a plan by to build a KillSat and hold the world hostage.

* RecycledSoundtrack: Several cues from ''Film/YouOnlyLiveTwice'' get re-used in this film. In particular, the theme for SPECTRE's rocket in the former film is re-used for the KillSat's attacks in this one, while the "Little Nellie" theme makes an appearance during the oil rig fight.

Added DiffLines:

* LeaningOnTheFourthWall: Bond's meeting with M seems to comment on Creator/SeanConnery's real-life absence between ''Film/YouOnlyLiveTwice'' and this film.
-->'''M:''' You've been on holiday, I understand. Relaxing, I hope.
-->'''Bond:''' Hardly relaxing but... most satisfying.

* AdaptedOut: The main villains of the book - Jack and Seraffimo Spang - are completely absent from the film.
* AdaptationDyeJob: Tiffany was blonde in the book, as opposed to a redhead in the film. Lampshaded when Bond asks, "Weren't you a blonde when I came in?"

* ExecutiveMeddling: When the film aired on ABC the network had the scene where Lana Wood, as Plenty O'Toole, walked around wearing nothing but a flimsy pair of see through pink panties artificially altered to make it appear as though she were wearing a black bra with black panties - despite the fact that her backless purple satin dress clearly showed that she had no bra.
