Diamonds Are Forever's deadly duo, Mr. Wint and Mr. Kidd cleverly
added a lighter side to their nefarious deeds by their moralistic
comments. Employed by SPECTRE to collect a large quantity of diamonds,
following and cutting off the smugglers' pipeline from South Africa
in the process, they attempt to dispose of 007 in several imaginative
ways, but end up leaving with their tails between their legs.
Mr. Wint: "If at first you don't succeed, Mr. Kidd..."
Mr. Kidd: "Try, try again, Mr. Wint."
Both Wint and Kidd share similar personalities, with the warped
minds of a killer. On the outside Wint and Kidd would both seem
polite and courteous, often more so to their victims, but with
a hint of sarcasm. However in reality Wint and Kidd's politeness
was nothing more than an orchestrated persona.
Wint and Kidd masqueraded as diamond carrier, but were actually
trained assassins working for Blofeld. They're job was to ambush
and kill diamond carries and steal their diamonds, for use in
the laser satellite. At the end of the mission, Wint and Kidd
were sent to assassinate Bond and Tiffany Case while they were
aboard a luxury cruise ship. Posing as waiters they planted a
bomb inside a cake and also attempted to strangle Bond who threw
them both overboard.
