Binder Hands

jailnurse responded to my Tribute to Saul Bass with a satirical reflection of the Bond title sequences. Of course, Maurice Binder's contributions to the Bond series is legendary (the gunbarrel opens every Bond film, after all), though the actual direction they ended up taking is attributable to Robert Brownjohn. Strangely enough, the Bond series is one of the few areas where you can count on having an interesting title sequence (Daniel Kleinman took over for Binder as of GoldenEye), up to and including Casino Royale...
