Saul Bass works…
“My initial thoughts about what a title can do was to set mood and the prime underlying core of the film’s story,to express the story in some metaphorical way.
I saw the title as a way of conditioning the audience, so that when the film actually began, viewers would already have an emotional resonance with it”

“Saul Bass wasn’t just an artist who contributed to the first several minutes of some of the greatest movies in history —
in my opinion his body of work qualifies him as one of the best filmmakers of this,or any other time.“
– Steven Spielberg
