DescriptionSpartacus (Universal International, 1960). Title Sequence Photo (13.5" X 30").
This is # 5A from the opening title sequence to Spartacus designed by Saul Bass. This is actually a great image as it was used twice in the sequence; once horizontally and again vertically. It begins to be seen in a dissolve midway through "CHARLES LAUGHTON as GRACCHUS" until it fades out and is then used for the following title as well, "NINA FOCH, JOHN IRELAND, HERBERT LOM, JOHN DALL, CHARLES McGRAW." The board on which the image is mounted has some slight wear to the edges and rounding to the corners. There is still some black masking tape on the image area that was placed there by the camera department along with some "Start" and "Stop" camera directions for use by the animation stand operator. The back has the following stamp; Saul Bass & Assoc., 7758 Sunset Blvd., Los Angeles 46, Cal." Art by Saul Bass. Very Fine-.
