Screen Capture & Short Film of the Day - The Fearless Vampire Killers, Title Sequence (1967)

Despite Polanski's always-remarkable craft, and a few good jokes centering on a Jewish villager-turned-vampire, there's just way too much bumbling in this one for my taste. The Fearless Vampire Killers suffers from being over-long, and is plagued with scene after scene of tepid slapstick. Sharon Tate delivers the most captivating performance of the company, but her screen time is frustratingly minimal.

I do love this title sequence though, music by Krzysztof Komeda:
