A diamond smuggling investigation leads James Bond to Las Vegas, where he uncovers an evil plot involving a rich business tycoon.
Tiffany calls Bond "Superman". Guy Hamilton declined directing The Spy Who Loved Me (1977) to direct Superman (1978), although legal problems meant he had to drop out. Screenwriter Tom Mankiewicz served as Creative Consultant and as an uncredited screenwriter for Superman (1978) and Superman II (1980).
Where is he? I shan't ask you politely next time. Where is Blofeld?
Japanese man: Cai... Cai... Cairo!
...sort of. During the Las Vegas car chase scene, Bond's car ends up riding on two wheels in order to pass through a narrow alley. When the car emerges at the other end of the alley it is balancing on the opposite pair of wheels. The producers spotted this error before release, however, and inserted a quick shot to indicate that, for some reason, Bond flips the car onto its other wheels. There must have been an opening somewhere in the alley. In a TV interview director Guy Hamilton said that after he'd filmed the car coming out of the alley he was called back to England and left Albert R. Broccoli ("Cubby") to film the car going into the alley. When Guy saw the rushes he pointed out the error to Cubby who refused to do a reshoot.
THE END of DIAMONDS ARE FOREVER James Bond will return in LIVE AND LET DIE
The original version of the scene where Bond drives on two wheels through the alley. This version was not used due to the watching crowds and the police cars at the end of this scene.
