Beautiful End Titles

2 or 3 Things I Know About Her, Jean-Luc Godard, 1967

Stumbled upon these fabulous end titles from various classic mid-century movies. They don’t make them like this anymore.

You can see stills from My Fair Lady directed by George Cukor, How To Murder Your Wife, Destination Moon and 2 or 3 Things I Know About Her from Jean-Luc Godard amoung many others.

It seems that these kind of end titles are a long lost art form and all we can do now is admire the style and grace of times gone by. If you want to see the rest of the stills, be sure to stop by the The End photo group on Flickr.

    They don’t make them like they used to.

  • No bummer huh?

    BOOOOOO:(

  • Of course there was a time when a movie simply ended with “The End” (though you might get a cast list too).  These days end credits seem more like an excuse for people to pile their way out of the cinema rooms like mice.
