Here's a couple of storyboard illustrations for the beginning and end title sequences for STEVE CANYON:
These were designed by an unknown artist working for the McCann-Erickson Agency in 1958. McCann-Erickson was the advertising agency involved in the show. These sketches were used as a guide by the production and post production crews to create the distinctive identical opening and closing sequences for the Steve Canyon series.
Comparing the second board to the actual shot in the titles...
Well, although they changed the screen direction of Steve's F-102 Delta Dagger from right-to-left in the designs to left-to-right for the entire filmed sequence they still followed the basic overall design closely.
We have more storyboards and a large array of never-before-seen materials from the series that we will be showing from time to time here and on the full-series DVD later this year for your edification...so stay tuned!
