A great site that celebrates the movie titles design of Saul Bass. Have another look (and get the background about) such classics as The Man WIth the Golden Arm, Psycho, Vertigo, and more. Interesting side note by Beth Gilligan about Bass's work on Psycho: "Bass was also credited as a 'pictorial consultant' for his role as an advisor on some of the movie’s critical sequences, including the famous shower scene. In an interview with François Truffaut, Hitch downplayed Bass’ role in the filming, but most other accounts credit him with fashioning the drawings that became the basis for several scenes."
