Pinewood Studios has honoured the legacy of production designer Peter Lamont who sadly passed away last year at the age of 91. He had worked on all but one of the James Bond films from 'Goldfinger' to 'Casino Royale'.

The studio renamed their East Side Complex building to the Peter Lamont Building this month. He was nominated for three Academy Awards for his work on 'Fiddler on the Roof' (1971), 'The Spy Who Loved Me' (1977), and 'Aliens' (1986), all were shot at Pinewood. His fourth nomination, for 'Titanic' (1997), won him the Oscar.

Andrew M. Smith, Corporate Affairs Director said: "We are delighted to honour Peter Lamont at Pinewood Studios and further celebrate the heritage of our Studios, which celebrates its 85th anniversary this year. Peter Lamont was a giant in the industry and a true gentleman to all those he met."
