Film Language Tag: title sequence

The titles or credits themselves as well as any other elements (images and sound) that may accompany them. Traditionally, James Bond films open with a lavish stunt sequence before the opening titles. The titles themselves appear over further stylized action, often involving the silhouette of a woman. The opening title sequence for West Side Story (1961) presented the credits as graffiti painted on various walls while an animated Pink Panther and Inspector Clouseau accompany the title sequences for the Pink Panther films, both opening and closing. In one of the more unusual credit sequences, Harry Nilsson sang the closing credits to Skidoo (1968), right down to the copyright notice.
