SCOREKEEPER: A TRIBUTE TO COMPOSER JOHN BARRY

When English composer John Barry died at the end of January, he left behind one of the most extraordinary legacies of any scorer in film history. Best known for his work as an arranger and composer on the James Bond movies, Barry established that series' signature blend of classical orchestral scoring with more modern jazz and pop sounds. As proof of his range during the 1960s, when he was launching the Bond sound, Barry also won an Oscar for the very different BORN FREE and picked up a Grammy for MIDNIGHT COWBOY. His work on SEANCE ON A WET AFTERNOON and THE WHISPERERS displayed a subtler, more introspective side, but throughout his career Barry was adept at lush, large-scale scores on epics like DANCES WITH WOLVES and OUT OF AFRICA. He returned to his jazz origins to great effect with BODY HEAT and THE COTTON CLUB, all the while racking up numerous credits on the stage and in television. The Cinematheque will pay tribute to the diversity and power of Barry's work with a cross-section of his finest films including WALKABOUT, THE IPCRESS FILE, DEADFALL, and THEY MIGHT BE GIANTS.

Join us for a tribute to the illustrious career of John Barry, including his many score contributions to the James Bond franchise: DR. NO, FROM RUSSIA WITH LOVE, OCTOPUSSY, DIAMONDS ARE FOREVER, THE MAN WITH THE GOLDEN GUN, GOLDFINGER and YOU ONLY LIVE TWICE.

At all screenings, all ticket buyers eligible to win a DVD of a film scored by John Barry! Titles include DANCES WITH WOLVES, DIAMONDS ARE FOREVER, THUNDERBALL, THE LION IN WINTER, A VIEW TO A KILL, and more!
