Film history from A to Z...

... in 7 minutes and 31 seconds: Think of this as the Opening Title Project. It's called "working title" by cuechamp, and it's a mesmerizing, rapid-fire montage of movie title cards, in alphabetical order, from silents to the present. It will only take a few minutes, but I guarantee you'll be flashing on subliminally glimped movie titles ("The Leech Woman") for days. Look for your favorites. Some of of my lesser-known faves that I'm glad to see acknowledged: "Accident," "The Brood," "Miracle Mile," Herzog's "Herz aus Glas" ("Heart of Glass" -- did I really see that?), the Sherlock Holmes picture "The Woman in Green" ... I'm getting dizzy. I'm going to have to go watch it again. I think I'm addicted.
