Composer John Barry, who won five Oscars for his film work, has died. He was 77.

Barry’s family said Monday that he had died in New York on Sunday.

The English-born composer was well known for his music for a string of James Bond films but his Oscars were from other films: “Born Free,” for which he won two statuettes; and “The Lion Winter,” ”Out of Africa” and “Dances with Wolves.” He was also nominated for work on two other films.

His association with Agent 007 began with “Dr. No” in 1962, although his contribution was not credited. He wrote music for a dozen Bond films in all.
