MOVIES 1960 - 1969
The movies are listed in chronological order with director and year of production.
If nothing further is mentioned, Saul Bass made titles "only"—as far as I know now.
For those he did not make titles for, look at his posters. There are more than you may think.
At page bottom is an alphabetical list.
Title illustrations are linked to title frames, record sleeves, and book covers.
