John Barry *was* present at Royal World Charity Premiere of “Born Free”
This clearly contradicts Michele Monro’s account from “The Singer’s Singer: The Life and Music of Matt Monro.”
This will puzzle anybody who has read Michele Monro’s Matt Monro biography since it is stated therein that of the Born Free song crew, only Matt turned up and had to alert Don & John that the song was omitted from that print!!
In fact, we had proof that John Barry was at the premiere for years as a photo featured in the books “John Barry – A Life In Music” and “John Barry – The Man With The Midas Touch”.
