Guy Hamilton, the British filmmaker who directed four James Bond titles, has died. He was 93.
A hospital on the Spanish island of Majorca — where Hamilton lived — confirmed the news to the Associated Press that the director had passed away there on Wednesday.
Roger Moore, who Hamilton directed in Live and Let Die and The Man with the Golden Gun, was among the first to pay his respects.
Incredibly, incredibly saddened to hear the wonderful director Guy Hamilton has gone to the great cutting room in the sky. 2016 is horrid.
— Sir Roger Moore (@sirrogermoore) April 21, 2016
Alongside Moore, Hamilton would also direct the next 007, Sean Connery, in Goldfinger and Diamonds are Forever, having first been brought on board the franchise thanks to a friendship with Cubby Broccoli.
Other films included The Battle of Britain, Force 10 From Navarone, Evil Under the Sun and The Mirror Crack’d.
