The first James Bond feature films from Eon Productions debuted in the 1960s. Over the course of the first five films, only one man portrayed the famed British secret agent: Sean Connery. After Connery opted not to reprise the role in 1969’s On Her Majesty’s Service, George Lazenby stepped into the role. However, for the release of Diamonds are Forever, the studio wanted Connery back and was willing to pay any price to get him. Connery would return to the role for a then-record sum of $1.25 million and complete his sixth appearance in an Eon film as Bond.
