Acclaimed art director Adam helped to define the 1960s and '70s look of the spy thriller with the James Bond films ("Goldfinger" 1964, "You Only Live Twice" 1967, "The Spy Who Loved Me" 1977). Born in Berlin in 1921, he immigrated to England in the mid-30s and served as the only German-born fighter pilot in the Royal Air Force during World War II. Adam entered films in the late 40s and, in addition to the Bond films, worked as art director on a number of critically-praised features including "Around the World in Eighty Days" (1956), Stanley Kubrick's "Dr. Strangelove" (1963) and "Barry Lyndon" (1975), Herbert Ross' "Pennies From Heaven" (1980), "Crimes of the Heart" (1986), "Addams Family Values" (1993) and "The Madness of King George" (1995).
