OK, it’s an MGM production. But what film uses this green background at the opening?
This is the opening of Saul Bass’ credits for “North by Northwest” (cue music by Bernard Herrmann!)
As B.J. Merholz noted, the answer is on Google. Please congratulate Dewey Webb, LC and Craig Deco for identifying it.
What surprised me about it – and the reason I posted the image – is that the treatment of the logo is so darn ugly. The green works fine with the titles, but it’s really garish with the logo, which seems to have been some odd conversion from color to black and white.
