Footnotes

  • Sean Connery played the role of James Bond for the seventh and final time in Never Say Never Again (1983), marking his return to the character 12 years after Diamonds Are Forever. The film's title is a reference to Connery's reported declaration in 1971 that he would "never again" play that role. As Connery was 52 at the time of filming, the storyline features an aging Bond, who is brought back into action to investigate the theft of two nuclear weapons by SPECTRE. Filming locations included France, Spain, the Bahamas and Elstree Studios in England. The film was a commercial success grossing $160 million at the box office.

    Provenance:
    Valerie Leon, who played the Bond girl 'Lady in the Bahamas' in the feature film. Leon can be seen wearing this identical kimono whilst at a hotel in the Bahamas with Connery after returning from a fishing excursion.
