Lewis Gilbert, the British director of Alfie, Educating Rita and three James Bond films, has died at the age of 97.

He was not only a director but, a producer and screenwriter as well.

Bond producers Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli said, “It is with great sadness that we learn of the passing of our dear friend Lewis Gilbert.”

Gilbert started out as a child actor before directing war films.

In 2002, Gilbert made his final film ‘Before You Go’ where he was reunited with ‘Educating Rita’ star Julie Walters. He received a BFI fellowship in 2001 for his work in British film.
