Star Wars credits redone in the style of Saul Bass

Bhilmers, a YouTube user and student, created this alternative credit reel for Star Wars in the style of legendary title-designer Saul Bass (The Man with the Golden Arm, Vertigo, Psycho, Casino, It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World and many more). You know, I think I prefer this to the iconic sheet-of-words, receding-into-space credit-reel. Link (via Kottke)



  1. Nicely done, but for the title with Ben Burtt and John Williams he uses Max Rebo, the piano playing elephant thing from Return of the Jedi, which is not in A New Hope. He should have used one of the cantina players.

  2. Oh come on people—only one comment and it’s a geeky criticism??
    Allow me to be the only one to point out how COOL this is. Saul Bass would have been proud. George Lucas would be …well, who gives a fuck about Lucas anyway?
