Bond films are well-known for their fast cars, imaginative gadgets, charismatic protagonists, exotic locations, and beautiful women. They are also known for the exquisite artistic vision and creativity of their title sequences.

Maurice Binder (August 25, 1925 – April 4, 1991) was once responsible for making such sequences a hallmark of the Bond movies, creating an overtly artistic space in movies focused on action, beautiful women, escapist sets and witty dialogue. Binder worked on all Bond movies from Dr. No in 1962 to Licence To Kill in 1989.

Binder's successor, Daniel Kleinman (born 23 December 1955), carried on to his legacy since the dawn of sophisticated computer-generated imagery. He has been in charge of all Bond films openings since GoldenEye (1995) except for Quantum Of Solace (he was replaced by MK12). He came back for Skyfall and SPECTRE.

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?

Why is the helicopter chase scene from "From Russia with Love" included in Goldfinger's title sequence?
