Saul Bass, master designer/title-ist/graphic wizard and doormat creator (I’ll get to that in a minute) designed one of his most felicitous credit sequences for Edward Dmytryk’s 1962 movie version of Nelson Algren’s ‘Walk On the Wild Side’. There’s nothing more for me to say about it. Simply watch and enjoy.
Oh, and about that ‘doormat creator’ bit? Click here to discover how I became the proud possessor of Otto Preminger’s Saul Bass-designed doormat which stood in front of the director’s East 64th St townhouse and which now resides (happily I may add) at an undisclosed location in Los Angeles near where I currently sit while writing this post.
