Useless fact of the day

I just discovered that Lana Wood, who is best known for her stirring portrayal of Bond girl "Plenty O'Toole" in Diamonds Are Forever, is the sister of Natalie Wood.

I also answered something that's bothered me for some time. In the movie, Bond meets Plenty in the casino and they go upstairs to his room. After he undresses her, some mafia guys hiding in the room throw her out of the window into the pool 10-stories below, ostensibly so Ms. Tiffany Case, played by the lovely Jill St. John, can put the moves on Bond. When next we see Plenty, she is bobbing in Ms. Case's pool. When Ms. Case asks Bond who she is, he makes some lame comment about how Plenty must have come looking for Ms. Case and the assassins sent to kill Ms. Case must have mistaken Plenty for her.

The problem is that Plenty never saw or even knew about Ms. Case, so why would she come looking for her? The hole is due to scenes removed from the final cut of the movie. Evidently, after being tossed from the window, Plenty returns to Bond's room (perhaps to locate her clothes) and spies Bond and Ms. Case in bed. Pissed off, she rummages through Ms. Case's purse, finds her address, and leaves. The rest is history.

If you have no understanding of any of this, then you clearly have not watched enough James Bond movies, and need to go rent something with Sean Connery in it, you commie.
