Saul Bass title sequence to “Grand Prix” (1966)
Never fails to awe. This is the film for design and art buffs that just so happens to be about auto racing. Any other subject given the same treatment – horticulture, taxidermy, hairdressing – and we still think it would have found an appreciative audience (okay, maybe not those particular subjects), unlike that other Famous Racing Film with which it’s usually inextricably linked.
Of course, the entire movie – not just limited to the Saul Bass title sequence – is highly recommended. The sounds and visuals throughout are tremendous, the storyline just engaging enough. You come for the sensory experience, though, not for the plot.
