The Bond movies are well-known for their fast cars, imaginative gadgets, charismatic protagonists, exotic locations, and beautiful women. In some circles, they're also known for the exquisite artistic vision and creativity of their title sequences. Maurice Binder is responsible for making these sequences a hallmark of the Bond movies, creating an overtly artistic space in movies focused on action, beautiful sets, and witty dialogue. This is a rare combination for movies that do well at a popular culture box office.

These page serve to chronicle the development of the Bond title sequences through a series of stills, from the "primitive" technological appropriations of Binder to the more CG-influenced sequences of recent movies, we'll see how this keystone of the Bond films originated and evolved over the course of the past five decades.

I sort of screwed up in an "opening" thread with titles but I wanted to make a specific thread about the best works in the title sequences. Personal favorites (as I mentioned in that thread):
-Goldfinger: The classiness of the golden girl with the scenes from the movie on top of her...great stuff
-YOLT: Perfect mood setter: the Japanese style, the exploding volcano, just sets up the movie
-OHMSS: "We have all the time in the world"...not much more you can say alongside Barry's epic instrumental
-LALD: Very freaky but in a good way with the voodoo set-up
-TLD: Sort of finally moved away from the silhouettes with a great intro that was classy and real (though somehow LTK wasn't as good with that)
-Goldeneye: the only "modern CGI" opening I've liked, perfectly set-up the gap and the "fall of the Cold War"

Most, if not all are in silhouette form but is there any source to identify some of these dancers?
