    Herewith please find a link, which I believe will be of interest to many in this group.

    Does it belong in the software section? It appears that the majority of images have been culled from DVDs. Hopefully the administrators will allow it to remain as both a reference and reminder of the brilliance of Saul Bass, Graphic Artist.

    Incredible is right. Saul Bass created some of the most interesting and eye catching titles around.

    Thank you for sharing. I enjoyed this.

    Wow, way cool! Thanks!!!

    (And now I am looking that much more forward to the upcoming releases of Vertigo, Psycho, and that end-all, be-all restored version of It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World--hey, I can dream on that last one, can't I?)

    The thing I love about Saul Bass is that his titles are all utterly distinctive and unique, perfectly designed around each film's requirements, and he never seems to copy himself. And yet, there is something about it, something you can't quite put your finger on, that means that a Saul Bass-designed title sequence is instantly identifiable. The man was an incredible artist
