    Don't forget Dances with Wolves -- one of his better scores IMO (and very skatable).

    RIP, Maestro Barry.

    And he was married to Jane Birkin....as well as doing some amazing film scores.

    I loved John Barry's music- Somewhere in Time, Out of Africa, Dances with Wolves. I think he either won 5 Oscars or was nominated for them. In any case he won multiple Oscars.

    RIP John Barry.

    His list of scores is second to none. Truly a genius and such a gracious person to his fans and other composers.
