Oscar Winning Composer John Barry Dies At Age 77
space
The Movie God   |  @   |  

Hollywood has lost another great; legendary film composer John Barry has passed away at the age of 77. His family confirmed that Barry died Sunday in New York after suffering a heart attack.

Barry crafted many brilliant musical scores over the years, but none perhaps more memorable than his contributions to the world of James Bond. The composer worked on eleven different Bond movies, and there’s no denying that the music he brought to the franchise will live on for eternity.

Apart from his highly recognized work with James Bond, Barry had many other credits to his name — over 100 movies, to be more specific. Over the course of his career he was nominated for seven Academy Awards, won five of them for his work on movies like Born Free, The Lion in Winter, Out of Africa, and Dances With Wolves.

You can find a musical tribute to the great John Barry by continuing on below.

Other notable titles that Barry composed the score for include Midnight Cowboy, Mary, Queen of Scots, and Chaplin. Most recently he did work on DreamWorks’ Madagascar and Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa.

  1. I didn’t realize that all the above were composed by him…but I didn’t see the credit for “Somewhere in Time”…Thanks for the update. He will be missed very much!
