A Brief History of Movie Title Designs

Checking my Twitter, I've discovered an interesting twit about how movie titles have been changed since the beginning of cinematograph. Everybody knows that 21st century movies are very different from their forefathers but all this changes you can see in 2 min 30 sec! It's really impressive.

The whole video you can watch here - Film | Blogging the Reel World.

You will see titles from such movies (in correct order):

Intolerance, Phantom of the Opera, King Kong, Modern Times, My Man Godfrey, Make Way For Tomorrow, Citizen Kane, The Maltese Falcon, Gun Crazy, The Treasure of the Sierra Madre, Lady in the Lake, Fallen Angel, The Thing, Singing in the Rain, The Man with the Golden Arm, Anatomy of a Murder, Psycho, North by Northwest, Vertigo, Grand Prix, To Kill A Mockingbird, Dr. No, The Pink Panther, Goldfinger, Dr. Strangelove, Bullitt, Barbarella, Soylent Green, Mean Streets, Star Wars, Saturday Night Fever, Superman, Alien, Raging Bull, The Terminator, Brazil, The Untouchables, Do The Right Thing, Forrest Gump, The Naked Gun, Cape Fear, Reservoir Dogs, Delicatessen, Natural Born Killers, Freaked, Se7en, The Island of Dr. Moreau, Mimic, Donnie Brasco, Mission Impossible, Dawn of the Dead, Fight Club, Catch Me If You Can, Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events, The Fall, Casino Royale, Six Feet Under, Carnivale, Dexter, Mad Men, Iron Man, Juno, The Kingdom, Wall•E, Sherlock Holmes, Up In The Air, Zombieland, Scott Pilgrim vs the World, Buried, Robin Hood, Machete, The Social Network, Enter The Void.

By the way the last one psychedelic title of "Enter The Void" was a Tarantino's pick as one of the greatest ever:

"Hands down best credit scene of the year … Maybe best credit scene of the decade. One of the greatest in cinema history."
