The Man with the Golden Touch: The Academy celebrates Saul, we release of one of his most iconic silkscreens, plus great holiday gift ideas and more.
Dear Friends, Movie Lovers & Saul Fans:
We've got some new releases from the Archive, including - for the first time - the sublime, iconic silkscreen for MAN WITH THE GOLDEN ARM, featuring Saul's original, unaltered design for the film (before United Artists added photos of Sinatra, Kim Novak and Eleanor Parker)
But first, we want to say a huge thanks to everyone at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences' Margaret Herrick Library for last week's event "Words On Film: Inside the Saul Bass Collection"
Several of Saul's silkscreens were on display, along with treasures from the Academy's huge Saul Bass collection and some personal items from the Bass family. We discussed Saul's work and life, had fun with some of Saul's vintage stamps and Jennifer Bass signed copies of her monumental monograph 'Saul Bass: A Life in Film & Design' (we have a handful of signed copies available on the site as well). It was a special night and we were grateful to be a part of it. Unfortunately it immediately sold out, so we couldn't invite everyone. But we're planning more events for next year, as we celebrate the 100th anniversary of Saul's birth. And there'll be room for everyone! Stay tuned. #saulbass100
