Saul Bass

"Saul Bass's flaming rose image for Otto Preminger's Carmen Jones set a new look for movie title designs in 1954. In 1956, his jagged arm and bars design for The Man with the Golden Arm also by Preminger revolutionized film marketing graphics, and every succeeding Preminger film carried Bass's distinctive design mark, as shown here: Bonjour Tristesse, Advise & Consent, Bunny Lake Is Missing, Exodus, The Human Factor, In Harm's Way, Saint Joan, Such Good Friends and perhaps his most famous, the dissected body graphic for Anatomy of a Murder"
