In honor of the publication of Saul Bass: A Life In Film & Design, Art of the Title editor-in-chief Ian Albinson assembled this compilation of clips from some of Bass’ memorable designs for movies. In addition, the Museum of Modern Art featured a screening and talk Monday night with the New York premiere of Saul and Elaine Bass’s Academy Award-winning short Why Man Creates (1968), newly preserved by the Academy Film Archive, and a selection of title sequences, commercials and corporate campaigns. Bass created titles for Psycho, The Man with the Golden Arm, Spartacus, The Seven Year Itch, West Side Story, Walk On The Wild Side, Anatomy Of A Murder and many other classics. He also designed posters for numerous Academy Awards ceremonies. Bass, who died November 14, 1996, also created logos for Dixie, Quaker Oats, United Airlines and many other companies. If you’re curious, a section of this site is dedicated to Bass’ movie stills.
