It was such a grand way to take home the "look" and "feel" of a movie. Not only were soundtrack composers like Henry Mancini much better than today's saccharine John Williamses, but the disc jacket provided a superior canvas for poster art--often, with its Pucci colors and cut-n-paste shapes, more creative than the flicks it advertised. Check out Saul Bass's herky-jerky designs for Hitchcock and Preminger; marvel at how an entire era can be so readily conjured up by a single typeface. -- Entertainment Weekly
