Some of the most remarkable opening titles designed by Saul Bass, sometimes in collaboration with his wife Elaine Bass.
From "The Man with the Golden Arm" (1955) to "Casino" (1995), this video represents a substantial part of his creative legacy in chronological order.

A NOTE ON COPYRIGHT: My only purpose in creating this video was to share these sequences with other cinephiles. This is material that is hard to come by commercially: To my knowledge, no DVD edition of Saul Bass opening titles exists.
If you have a problem with this, please let me know, but do it the civilized way: Instead of complaining to YouTube, please send me a little note. I will then take down this video ASAP. Thanks!
