When people talk about the great graphic designer/poster artist Saul Bass, they often namecheck his two most famous works: the posters for Otto Preminger's The Man With the Golden Arm, and Alfred Hitchcock's Vertigo. Both are great (and, in the case of Vertigo, the poster is an excellent encapsulation of the equally stunning title sequence Bass created for that film), but in lazily clicking through Brendon Dawes' Saul Bass tribute site, I came across the above image, a poster for Billy Wilder's much-maligned sex-and-commies comedy, One, Two, Three. What can I say - it made my inner 12-year-old boy giggle.
