Movie Title Sequence

The master and creator of animated title sequences is Saul Bass. He, being a graphic designer, realized that the credits at the beginning of films had an opportunity to say something more than just names. It was an opportunity to engage the viewers, and make them connect with the movie before it even begun. Here is one of my favorite title sequences of his, Anatomy of a Murder, made in 1959.
