Birthday of Monty Norman [1928]

Monty Norman, who composed the James Bond Theme and soundtrack for Dr No (1962), was born on 4th April 1928 in London.

The version of the James Bond Theme used was actually arranged by John Barry, who claimed that he actually wrote the piece. But Norman won two libel suits against publishers who claimed Barry wrote the theme, and claimed it was based on a piece he wrote for an unproduced stage production.
