Peter Curtis Lamont (born 12 November 1929 in England, UK) is a noted set decorator, art director, and production designer most famous for working on eighteen James Bond films. The only five Bond films that he did not work on are Dr. No, From Russia with Love, Tomorrow Never Dies, Quantum of Solace and Skyfall.

Throughout his near 60-year career, Lamont has been nominated for three Academy Awards for his work on Fiddler on the Roof (1971), The Spy Who Loved Me (1977) and Aliens (1986).[1] He was nominated a fourth time and won for Titanic (1997).

On August 22, 1982, Lamont was a passenger on an Indian Airlines flight from Mumbai to New Delhi, which was hijacked by a lone Sikh militant, armed with a pistol and a hand grenade. Indian security forces killed the hijacker and rescued all passengers, including Lamont.
