Movie Stills: part 1

December 13, 2009

This Movie Title Stills Collection, compiled by web-designer Christian Annyas is very special. Featuring over 800 title stills from movies dating from 1920 to the present day, the site presents the stills in handy chronological order.

Most of the earlier featured films (up to around the 1950s) include alternate screen shots from the films’ trailers, and the screens that appeared to announce the end of the film. Some of these are obviously stock images used by the studios for a variety of films, but other, such as this first one, from King Kong, follow the design of the opening title.
Christian also runs a site called Art of the Title Sequence, which features appraisals of many sequences, plus interviews with their creators. Well worth a look, as it also contains quicktime videos of all the sequences, many of which are not available on YouTube.
