Even though I knew that Saul Bass did the opening titles for Billy Wilder’s film The Seven Year Itch back in 1955, I never imagined I’d ever get to see two of my greatest heroes together in the same room. I don’t know what the back story is to these photos, but they are from a 1993 interview they did together in Los Angeles with Pat Kirkham, who coincidentally (or not) is the author of that new book on Bass I wrote about in the previous post.

I was lucky enough to visit this performance art piece in February, it was so good!
