scored dozens of films, that called for music to express a wide variety of human emotions and dramatic situations. The britsh composer of jazzy scores for “From Russia With Love", "Goldfinger” and other James Bond films won five Academy Awards as a composer for “Born Free,” “Dances With Wolves” and other films.
He will remain in our swetest memoirs touched by movies as "Dances with Wolves", "Out of Africa", "Indecent Proposal", "The Cotton Club" among others.
It is impossible to wrote of a 50-year career briefly. I love good movies! And I think the soundtrack is one of the best elements of a film. John Barry touched many lives with his poetic soundracks.

“I like to score the inner feelings of a character — get into their shoes in an imaginative way and take the audience there and enlighten them in a poetic rather than realistic way,”
