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.
