Mr. Albert Wint and Mr. Charles Kidd are the secondary antagonists in the 1971 James Bond film Diamonds Are Forever based on the 1956 novel of the same name written by Ian Fleming.
In the movie they are assassins hired by Ernst Stavro Blofeld while in the original novel Wint and Kidd are enforcers who work for a diamond-smuggling crime organisation called "The Spangled Mob".
In both the novel and the film, Wint and Kidd are responsible for the death of everyone who has something to do with the smuggle of the diamonds, in order to eliminate all witnesses. They seem to enjoy their work.
In the book, they disguise themselves as American businessmen, under the assumed names of W. Winter and B. Kitteridge, allowing them to travel the world without causing suspicion. Here, they follow the smugglers, to ensure that they stick to the plan. Wint and Kidd torture Bond, but Tiffany Case helps him escape. They pursue Bond and Case to a cruise liner, where they attempt to kill them, but they themselves are killed by Bond and arranged to look like a murder-suicide.
In the film, the diamonds are being used by Ernst Stavro Blofeld to construct a weapons satellite. Wint and Kidd prefer overly-elaborate kills, including having Bond incinerated in a crematorium and attempting to have him buried alive in a pipeline, both of which ultimately fail.
After Bond causes the plan to fail, Wint and Kidd make one last attempt to kill him, presumably on Blofeld's orders. They disguise themselves as waiters on a cruise liner that Bond is on, serving him and Tiffany a very romantic meal - with a bomb concealed in the desert. Bond realises who they are after smelling Wint's aftershave (a container of which saturated his clothes during the desert assassination attempt) and rumbles them. In retaliation, Kidd tries to stab Bond with flaming skewers whilst Wint strangles him with his chain. Bond throws cognac on Kidd, causing him to burst into flames; he jumped off the ship and drowned. Wint had a fist fight with Bond, but Bond tied the desert bomb around Mr. Wint and threw him over the side of the ship; the bomb promptly detonated, killing Wint instead of Bond.
- In the film, it is heavily implied that Wint and Kidd are gay, and possibly lovers. In one scene, they are shown holding hands. In another, Kidd comments that diamond smuggler Tiffany Case is very attractive "for a lady".
- This possibly stems from a line in the novel, in which Felix Leiter believes them to be a gay couple.
