Generally film titles are considered a minor aspect of the final film, but this proves otherwise. Saul Bass, the renowned pioneer in the area of title design, gives an introduction into his work. A highly articulate man, Mr. Bass makes us see
and understand - different functions a title sequence can have for a
movie. I missed some of his outstanding work though, like the ones from "Psycho" or "The man with the Golden Arm". But stills of that aren't hard to come by. See for yourself, it's good stuff. Convention shattering, too.
