I love Opening Title sequences. Too bad they're now gone in modern cinema. So I read with delight this list and I had a Beatle fan moment when I read the number 2. a-hard-days-night-paul-5

EEP! I had one too 🙂 When I watched it the first time I kept re-watching that part, over and over again, because I loved it. I knew it was going to be a good movie because even the first few seconds were awesome.

I love how the article specifically mentions that George does a faceplant in the opening scene. a-hard-days-night-george-4

Yeah, AHDN's opening is pretty excellent indeed. But for me, nothing will ever top this:

 

ALL those Saul Bass/Hitchcock titles were fantastic! And that MUSIC!: Don't forget that it was George Martin's chief model for his "Eleanor Rigby" arrangement!

One day, a tape-op got a tape on backwards, he went to play it, and it was all "Neeeradno-undowarrroom" and it was "Wow! Sounds Indian!"
-- Paul McCartney

a-hard-days-night-george-9a-hard-days-night-ringo-10a-hard-days-night-john-6a-hard-days-night-paul-8 3 out of 4 Beatles agree - this is great! Paul thinks they should have been number one.

Ad hoc, ad loc, and quid pro quo! So little time! So much to know!

LOL! 

But shouldn't it go like this?

If I seem to act unkind, it's only me, it's not my mind that is confusing things.
