Jill St. John (born Jill Arlyn Oppenheim; August 19, 1940) is an American actress. She is perhaps best known for her role as Bond girl Tiffany Case in Diamonds Are Forever (1971).
St. John's most famous role was as Tiffany Case, the Bond girl in the James Bond film Diamonds Are Forever (1971), where she starred opposite Sean Connery. She was the first American to play a Bond girl. The following year, she starred in the crime thriller Sitting Target(1972) with Oliver Reed.

Kevin K. in Washington, DC replied:
I'm going with Jill St.John, who played Tiffany Case in Diamonds Are Forever. First Bond movie I saw in it's first run in movie theaters instead of on TV or a re-release double header. I loved it.
I think I know this - Jill St. John.
It's still smoky but less so than the previous 5 days. Today is predicted to be cooler than yesterday, when we stayed in double digits. Whew. It's been rough.
Hope you're staying cool, or cooling off, Marty.

... and I've always thought that she was... yes, I'll say it... Hot... Very Hot... plus, Smart Hot, too, so much the better... Ol' Bob W. made an excellent choice these past 35 years sticking tight by her, I'm sayin'... Don't ever let go of that one, Bob... Never ever... Good grief, no...
She's still hot...
Oh, my, yes...
Way too Hot Moment - Sorry to see what everyone 'Out West' is experiencing with it being Temp Hot for ya, an' all... I see the fire map (which doesn't even cover LaLaland) and I shudder...
I feel for all affected... I also feel fortunate that it's not been like that, at all, here in the Great Lakes region. It's been much cooler than normal and wetter, too. It's so green here. There hasn't been a major fire in the north woods of Michigan since 2012... It feels so much like Autumn here now. This coming week the high temps are projected to be in the low-mid 60's... with some occasional showers... It's almost like we're an oasis in comparison... Hang in there, western folk...
I fell for Steely Dan the first time I heard their music, in the early 70s. Sure, it was pop, and yet so much more. And when I heard of Walther Becker's death yesterday I felt as though a part of my youth passed as well.

Braving the rain, threats of violence and uncertainty over police permits, dozens of civil rights activists set out on the sixth day of their 118-mile trek from Charlottesville, Virginia, to Washington, D.C., on Saturday to protest the white supremacist ideas that inspired deadly violence in Charlottesville a few weeks ago.
The 10-day journey, which organizers from progressive and faith organizations are calling a "March to Confront White Supremacy," began on Monday with a rally in Charlottesville's Emancipation Park and is due to conclude this coming Wednesday with nonviolent civil disobedience in the nation's capital.
With an escort from the Virginia State Police and Virginia Department of Transportation, the rain-gear-clad marchers spent Saturday walking 12 miles along Route 29 from Warrenton to Gainesville ? all while waving placards with messages like "Black Lives Matter" and singing racial justice-themed songs. Participation in the march varies from one day to the next, but organizers estimated that there were 80 people marching on Saturday.
"We're marching to say enough is enough," said Puja Datta, a 29-year-old Working Families Party organizer who traveled from Columbus, Ohio, to participate in the march.
The marchers have already overcome racially-motivated intimidation, the kind of which they have assembled specifically to protest. Wednesday's leg of the march ended early after organizers received threats that an armed person was awaiting them at their destination in Madison, Virginia.

Among the smallest victims of Hurricane Harvey are thousands of pets left without a home after floodwaters inundated large swathes of the Houston area.
In the city of Katy, just west of Houston, the non-profit organization Austin Pets Alive! in previous days has set up a intake center to take care of pets affected by the storm.
Since starting operations on Tuesday, the center has received nearly 2,000 animals, large and small, veterinarian Ellen Jefferson, the executive director of the organization told HuffPost on Sunday.
APA! provides these animals with emergency care, vaccinations, shelter and food. The organization tries to reconnect lost pets with their owners, and aims to help find new homes for those animals that need adopting.
Among the animals in need of a new home were thirty cats who had been under the care of an elderly woman in the area, Jefferson said. The woman loved each one of them and had veterinary documents for all, she said. But left homeless by the storm, she was headed for the home of her son out of state. There was no way to take along 30 cats.

A painting by British-born Australian artist Tom Roberts which was lost for 136 years was discovered to be an original after the owners - a husband and wife who spent their savings on it even though they were told it was a forgery - approached the BBC's Fake or Fortune program.
Joe Natoli, a former mayor in Queensland's Sunshine Coast, bought the 1883 oil painting, titled Rejected, from an online auction site in 2013 even though it was listed as a fake.
The painting was signed by Tom Roberts, considered a founder of Australian impressionism, but had no other indications that it was an original. It depicted a man in a studio and appeared to have little in common with the outdoor landscape works for which he is best known.
Mr Natoli and his wife, who are both passionate about art, eventually paid £9,000 for the painting but an expert soon after examined the brushwork and composition and deemed that it was a fake.
The program took on the task - its first attempt to authenticate an Australian work - and confirmed that an address on the back of the painting corresponded with the location of a house in London at which Roberts lived between 1883 and 1884. The artist, who moved from Dorchester to Australia at about age 13 in 1869, was the first Australian to be admitted to the Royal Academy of Arts in London and studied there between 1881 to 1884.
Winds wreaked havoc on wildfires that were threatening two crown jewels of the National Park Service on Monday, pushing the flames toward manmade and natural icons in and around Glacier and Yosemite national parks.
The wind-driven fires, combined with high temperatures and dry conditions, have disrupted holiday travel and hampered firefighters across the West during a Labor Day weekend that capped a devastating summer in which an area larger than Rhode Island has burned.
A fire in Montana's Glacier National Park emptied the park's busiest tourist spot as wind gusts drove the blaze toward the doorstep of a century old lodge. The 14-square-mile (36-square-kilometers) fire that consumed a historic Glacier backcountry chalet last week was about a mile away from Lake McDonald Lodge, a 103-year-old Swiss chalet-style hotel.
Outside California's Yosemite National Park, a wind-fueled fire on Sunday drove deeper into a grove of 2,700-year-old giant sequoia trees. Officials said the fire had gone through about half the grove, and had not killed any trees.
There are about 100 giant sequoias in the grove, including the roughly 24-story-high Bull Buck sequoia, one of the world's largest. Fire crews also wrapped 19th-century cabins in shiny, fire-resistant material to protect them from the flames.

Denmark, the world's top wind turbine producer, is selling off its last oil company.
Last month, A.P. Moller-Maersk, the country's famed industrial and shipping conglomerate, agreed to sell its oil and gas division to French giant Total. Pending regulatory approval, the $7.45 billion deal is expected to close by next year, Bloomberg reported.
The move comes three months after Dong Energy, the Danish firm that's spearheading offshore wind development in the United States and across Europe, sold its oil and gas business to a German buyer for $1.3 billion.
The Nordic nation still needs revenues from its North Sea oil fields to fund its transition to clean energy, and Total promised to do so. But Denmark has pledged to completely wean itself off fossil fuels by 2050.
Scandinavian countries are taking aggressive steps to reduce carbon emissions from their electricity sectors, despite some nations' long reliance on fossil fuel revenues. Sweden produced 57 percent of its power from renewables in 2015, and aims to bring that number to 100 percent by 2040. Norway, whose state-owned Statoil fuels a massive sovereign wealth fund, is investing heavily in offshore wind, including off the coast of New York. Iceland, a volcanic island with plentiful water resources, gets 100 percent of its energy from geothermal and hydropower.
A 106-year-old Afghan woman who made a perilous journey to Europe, carried by her son and grandson through mountains, deserts and forests, is facing deportation from Sweden after her asylum application was rejected.
Bibihal Uzbeki is severely disabled and can barely speak. Her family has appealed the rejection.
Their journey made headlines in 2015, when they were part of a huge influx of people who came to Europe from Syria, Afghanistan, Iraq and other countries. They traveled by foot and on trains through the Balkans before finally reaching Sweden.
Two years later, she and her 11 family members are living in the small village of Hova, in central Sweden.
Her rejection letter came during Ramadan. While the family avoided telling her, the constant grief from her granddaughters made her suspicious.

Wielding axes, rakes and shears, young European volunteers with sweat on their brows have been sprucing up the continent's largest Jewish cemetery, a Warsaw site largely neglected since the Holocaust.
"At the cemetery's entrance, the pathways are rather well kept and the graves well preserved, but the rest of it, like this spot here, is more of a jungle," says volunteer Stanislaw Knapowski.
"There's a lot of wild vegetation and trees that have been growing since the end of the Second World War," explains this Boy Scout from Poznan, a city in western Poland.
Over nine days last month, he cleared the cemetery grounds with around 60 other volunteers from a dozen countries, among them Belarusians, Danes, Finns, Germans and Spaniards.
They were recruited by Civil Service International, a global nonprofit organisation, and its Polish branch, One World Association, to get involved in the cemetery project which was launched three years ago by the Cultural Heritage Foundation, a Polish nonprofit.
The concept that men stay at home while independent women venture out into the world is considered a rather modern phenomenon.
But a study suggests that in fact, the practice was rooted in ancient times, when Bronze Age men stayed at home while adventurous women were the key to spreading culture and ideas.
The research reveals that over a period of some 800 years, European women travelled between 300km and 500km from their home villages to start families, while men tended to stay near where they were born.
German archaeologists examined the remains of 84 people buried between 2500 and 1650BC, discovering that at the end of the Stone Age and in the early Bronze Age, families were established in a surprising manner.
The researchers said the so-called "patrilocal" pattern combined with individual female mobility was not a temporary phenomenon, but persisted throughout the transition from the Neolithic to the Early Bronze Age.
