DIRECTOR: VARIOUS

Known for his fluid and geometric title designs and posters (and with iconic logos created for the Girl Scouts and Bell Telephone), Saul Bass remains one of the most iconic and influential designers of the twentieth century. To illustrate his wide range of works, as well as the impressive list of filmmakers he has collaborated with, the Academy Film Archive has created a reel of his most famous (and lesser seen) title sequences. Along with two of Bass' short films, Why Man Creates (1958) and The Solar Film (1980), all courtesy of the Academy Film Archive, the program will be accompanied with a screening of Bass' only feature, Phase IV,and Saul Bass: In His Own Words, a tribute produced by the Academy.
