Nice one Daniel, well done.

View to a Kill reached No.2 here in the UK but topped the US charts at No.1. The only(to date) James Bond theme to reach the No.1 spot.

Over to you again Daniel.

If it's Best Actor you're looking for, I suspect it would be James Cagney in Yankee Doodle Dandy

Andy to set then (I hadn't read the question properly, I missed the "actor" bit and went for a producer/best film theme instead). Had I thought "actor" Cagney would've been my best first guess, playing George M Cohan.

Sorry about the delay

Which 2006 French film is based on a Harlan Coben novel and was described by no less a luminary than Michael Caine as his favourite film from 2006 and in his Top Ten of all time?
