Diamonds are Forever is a 1971 UK James Bond film by Guy Hamilton. See IMDb
Passed A (PG) after BBFC cuts for:
The BBFC cinema cuts were:
- The fight in the lift between Peter Franks and Bond was reduced to remove blows and sound effects.
- Bond squirting the fire extinguisher into Frank’s face was reduced in length.
- Bond menacing Mr Kidd with a broken brandy bottle was trimmed. It’s so brief in the film, one wonders what was cut, but my guess is that the actual grabbing and breaking of the bottle was cut, leaving just the footage of Bond throwing the liquid onto Kidd’s arms. Perhaps what little focus there is on the weapon was deemed a more serious imitability issue back then.
- Footage of the ablaze Mr Kidd running across the deck screaming and climbing up onto the railing, as he throws himself overboard was removed, leaving just the shot of him hitting the water. When shown on TV, this scene is usually cut similarly.
