Goldfinger Title Sequence Credits
What Goldfinger lack in complexity, certainly doesn't lack in originality. Goldfinger is my personal favourite opening sequence in the 20th century, along side the original Italian Job. Movie studios back then didn't have the advanced technology that movie studios have today, improvisation was needed to catch the eye and draw in the audience without the elaborate effects we take for granted today. The best way in which movies of the period did this was via music, it was hints of what the movie held in store for the audience in very clever musical enigma's, which Goldfinger plays on very well. Compared to the editing techniques used today, Goldfinger's opening is basic, at best; and as a result of this for the next post i will be showing the technological advancements in film openings.
