(Friday, August 13, 1971) — Actor Sean Connery today filmed his final scenes for Diamonds Are Forever, the seventh “official” James Bond film. Ironically, the last shots were of Connery being placed in a coffin (he would not return to the role of 007 until the “unofficial” Never Say Never Again in 1983).
