The history of title sequences

During the early days of cinema, title sequences were often purely informational and had very minimal aesthetics,if any at all. That started to change with the introduction of film with sound,when visually interesting montages and prologues were derived. By the 1960s, they became an art form, especially with the establishment of the iconic graphic designer Saul Bass. Above is an example of a simple title sequence from the 1940's.
