Art Director on GOLDFINGER and THUNDERBALL, Production Designer for THE MAN WITH THE GOLDEN GUN

The first time I met art director Peter Murton was at the 40th Anniversary of Thunderball (1965) at Cine Lumiere in London on 20th November 2005.

The friendly Peter worked on many early Bond films in the art department, and was the production designer for The Man with the Golden Gun (1974).

After the first time, I was fortunate to meet him at several of Bondstars events at Pinewood Studios, always entertaining Bond scholars with stories about working on movies such as The Ipcress File (1965), The Lion in Winter (1968), Death on the Nile (1978), Superman II (1981) and Superman III (1983) . His career in films spans almost sixty years.

Sadly, Peter Murton passed away in December 2009. He will be dearly missed and our thoughts are with his family.
