Forgive my pun-tastic title…Hey! Speaking of titles, The Movie Titles Stills Collection, a collection of the main titles from films ranging from yesterday to yesteryear, is my new favorite site of all time (ever-changing as that title may be)! I quite like how creator, Christian Annyas describes the project so I won’t try to top him:
“I’ve seen a lot of movies over the years, and to prove I’ve sat through at least the first ten minutes of them I started making screenshots of the titles. Then my computer crashed and I almost lost them all. To save them for future generations I created this little website.”
Here are a few tips:
- The site is organized by decade & a few genres (noir & westerns)
- Rollover the image to see the end title
- He provides the tagline, director name, country of origin, & even a link to buy the dvd on Amazon!
- There’s also trailer titles by decade (through the 70s, so far)!
- Get creative with your perusing –like poking around 1939 and the onset of technicolor
Head over, and prepare to be hooked for at least an hour–I preemptively apologize to your respective employers. See also: The Art of the Title Sequence :: drool ::
And I thought book covers were cool…
