Ocean's 11 title sequence
Although I've already done a post about Ocean's 11, here is the opening, credits/title sequence, which I only had in screencap form, previously. The design and animation is by Saul Bass, the guy responsible for the ones from Spartacus, Around the Word in 80 Days, North By Northwest, Vertigo, and The Man with the Golden Arm, just to name a few. I think it's possibly the coolest I've ever seen, topping even some of Maurice Binder's James Bond opening credits. Nelson Riddle's finger-snappin' arrangement of the theme adds just the right musical flavor. Ahh yes, 1960--what a year!
