Description
Synopsis of our adaptation: Bond has been working on a mission - He is spying on Willard Whyte, a man who is thought to be controlling an international diamond smuggling ring. He goes to Amsterdam, under disguise, and meets his contact - Tiffany Case. While working to gain information, Case is his go to for information and works as an informant citing that she knows someone that works closely with Whyte. Throughout their time together Bond and Case become very close and share an intimate relationship. Bond observes Whyte and his team from afar at a casino they frequent. Since the observations and spying on Whyte and his team are extremely dangerous, Bond gives Case a handkerchief that his father used to give his mother when he went away on missions during the war. It was seen as a promise that he would always be coming back and would be faithful to her. One day while observing, Bond notices Whyte’s new accessory - his handkerchief. Outraged, Bond heads back to his secret bunker with Tiffany, where she is sleeping. The scene picks up here with Bond about to kill Tiffany. What Bond doesn’t know is that the person that is Tiffany’s informant that works closely with Whyte, has figured her out. Her informant takes the handkerchief and gives it to Whyte as a gift - hoping that Bond will see it. Bond: Shakespeare: SCENE II. A bedchamber in the castle: DESDEMONA in bed asleep; a light burning.
