    M and Les Enfants are good, but the rest are uninteresting.

    The greatest has to be another by Saul Bass: the one for Hitchcock's Vertigo.

    Cocteau's Beauty and the Beast is one of my favorites.

    Saul Bass' Spartacus titles are pretty great

      Absolutely agree...legendary titles for a legendary film. Saul Bass was money all the way.

    Those are good, although they are missing Do The Right Thing. Incidentally, it needs a bluray upgrade.

    I suppose pretty much any of Powell & Pressburger's technicolor titles are great. Another in the Criterion Collection that hasn't been mentioned is Island of Lost Souls. I like the eery wavy sea-splashed titles. And for me, the best Hitchcock title sequence is the fractured beauty of Psycho.

    ive come late to the party and even though we all know that saul bass is major domo de facto amongst what is surely the most deserving, ignored, yet never awarded imaginary Oscar for 'best motion picture titles,' im gonna pick a massively ignored title set (beginning titles and hay's office satisfying kiss off of a newspaper headline and sub-article blowing by on a street in new orleans for but a moment end titles): "Walk on the Wild Side." a black cat strutting in what seems to be adjusted speed b&w stock to make it seem as if this harbinger of doom is glowing silkily from each angle against an inky black background. genius in its seeming simplicity that drops you into your trance, just like you paid the person at the entrance for.
