I love creative opening movie credits and I think most people who are a bit geeky about them will agree that Saul Bass is the king of them.

Here are his opening credits for North by Northwest.

Anyone have others they particularly enjoy?

edit: forgot to mention Art of the Title an entire website dedicated to opening title sequences. Enjoy.

Great call on Art of the Title.

I love them (opening credits) as well.

Here are a few:

Catch Me if You Can is great and a total rip off of North by Northwest

Dr. No - although the switch to 3 blind mice is kind of weird

Do the Right Thing - Watch Rosie dance to PE

The Pink Panther - The opening title sequence is probably more famous than the movies themselves.

But my favorite is Dr. Strangelove. Sex between airplanes never looked so good.
