Have a look at this one too: marvellous typographic rendering of a dialogue from Tarantino's Pulp Fiction. It's already been posted at least 4 times on YouTube.

The word "typographic" must be used verrrryyyy loosely here... but some great stuff. I just watched Dr. Strangelove last week again and noticed the way cool typography there.

I also love Thank You for Smoking: http://www.shadowplaystudio.com/smoking.html

Recall cool type based credits for Cronenberg's Crash http://www.cronenbergcrash.com/Scenes/Credits/credits.html

Dead Ringers but can't find it on the web.

The Untouchables - shadows cast by huge letters - can't find it either

the remake of Cape Fear http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_MoOz7D4Z94

I was showed up. They did include "Seven" along with "North by Northwest". You have to include a Bond title. My picks 'From Russia With Love" Goldfinger"

Oh and here's another little sequence, hardly about typography, more like The Origins of Reader-Friendly Book Design. A great favourite with palaeographers:
