Of the Sword of Power

Easily one of my favorite opening title sequences of all-time, from John Boorman's Excalibur (1981). The Richard Wagner piece that also closes out the film is called, "The Funeral March from Gotterdammerung."

Of course, there's always the openings of A Clockwork Orange, Vertigo, North by Northwest, High Noon, The Wild Bunch and then...I'm drawing a blank. What are the other great title sequences/opening credits?
