FILM: Gunga Din - Opening Credits Optical Dissolves

These elaborate opening credits feature a simple but striking (no pun intended) dissolve effect. The final shot would have taken several passes through the optical printer to add the live footage, painted frame, and doctored title footage.

from Gunga Din (1939)
Creator: George Stevens
