SAUL BASS TRON & LOST Opening Credits

For those who aren't hip to the ways of Saul Bass he is the man who brought a new swing and style to the world of openign credits for such giants as Alfred Hitchcock and Stanley Kubrick. Bass has rocked his vision for movie like The Man with the Golden Arm (1955), The Seven Year Itch (1955), Around the World in Eighty Days (1956), Vertigo (1958), Anatomy of a Murder (1958), North by Northwest (1959), Psycho (1960), Spartacus (1960), Exodus (1960), Ocean’s Eleven (1960), West Side Story (1961), It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World (1963), Broadcast News (1987), Big (1988), Goodfellas (1990), Cape Fear (1991 )and Casino (1995). His minimalist style and ability to put the vision to music made him a real unsung hero. A while back a fan designed the opening to Star Wars in a Saul Bass fashion and now we get TRON and LOST. DIG IT!!
