« Met Percent: Week Twenty-two [by Alec Bernstein] | Main | Keegan Lester Draws an Ace [by Ace Boggess] »

July 24, 2020


This is wonderful. I'm glad I now know who to admire -- and thank! -- for enhancing that expectation and excitement that I felt in my teens and 20s when I went to the movies. As a kid, I'd only been able to see a few movies, so when I finally got to the big city this was a spectacular indulgence. And the brilliance of Saul Bass and some others in the field captured that thrill, that sensation at the start of the movie that something marvelous was about to unfold. Thank you for taking us inside Saul Bass' artistic process.

My mother was Saul Bass' art teacher, one of her first teaching jobs at James Monroe HS in the Bronx. He stayed in touch and would sometimes meet my parents when he came to NYC from I was very aware of his art work from an early age. It's wonderful to see his reputation grow over time.

Thanks for the great comment, Rick.

We really appreciate the comment, Suzanne. Thanks. -- DL
