    Description

    Spartacus (Universal International, 1960). Title Sequence Photo (20" X 22").
    From the opening title sequence to Stanley Kubrick's Spartacus is this original photographic image created by Saul Bass. This is plate # 3 and was used in the background with the following superimposed, "LAURENCE OLIVIER as CRASSUS." As befitting the conceptual designs of Mr. Bass, this image depicts a Roman Scepter and signifies the nobility of Crassus. The image still has some black masking tape around the edges as placed by the camera department. There are also portions of a pegboard strip still attached showing that the entire sequence was filmed on an animation stand. There are some camera directions in the borders. The board itself shows very minor wear to the edges and a slight stress line in the lower left corner of the image. On the back of the board is the following stamp, "Saul Bass & Assoc., 7758 Sunset Blvd., Los Angeles 46, Cal." Art by Saul Bass. Very Fine.
