The 007 films are rich in brilliant openings, and I'm not just talking about the big Bond gun-barrel thing. 007 aside, The Lion In Winter has a fantastic opening. The meld of Barry's powerful opening title music against chiarascuro lit gargoyles is just fantastic. I think the Raise The Titanic overture, set to lovely nostalgaic pictures, is another. And, the cut of Meryl Streep's voice sliding away into the train scene as she remembers, "I had a farm in Africa ..." That's a pretty cool opening too. Cheers
THE BLACK HOLE's main title sure made those wire-frame graphics a lot more impressive than they'd otherwise have been, didn't they? The entire opening thirty minutes of that movie, and especially its Overture, may be in JB's top five creations.
OHMSS the best! brm
Re: I am quite partial to this one: Without Barry's music, I don't think the film would have done as well as it did, and I certainly never would have bought it on DVD and Blu-ray WITHOUT it.
Try this one for size!! VIDEO
