Classic Credits: "Walk on the Wild Side" (1962)

Walk on the Wild Side randommusings.filminspector.com



Saul Bass, who was one of the great creator of classic credits, did this title and ending sequence for "Walk on the Wild Side," an early Jane Fonda/late Barbara Stanwyck film in 1962 that is forgotten today.

It's not a great film - no reason to go hunt it down - what you see here is absolutely the best part of the whole thing.

The song itself is a bit of a classic as well.

I'll post other favorite title sequences here from time to time, it's a whole separate art form from film-making.
