The Movie Studio Logo Quiz
These studio logos are all one-shots associated with a single movie. It's up to you to match the logo with the picture it opened. I could have made it multiple choice, but where's the challenge in that?
Post your answers in the comment section and I'll confirm or deny. Have fun! I know I did putting this together!
5.) Many studios were quick to adopt 2oth Century Fox's CinemaScope process, but this is the only film to sport this particular logo. Here's a hint: it's from a western.
7.) Given the scarcity of Technicolor productions during the war years, this logo could very well have headed a few Universal pictures, but only one comes to mind. If there are others, I'm sure you'll let me know. Here's a hint: it's from a western.
11.) The old MGM lion was briefly replaced with this shaggy-maned counterpart for a brief time in the late '50's and early '60's. This may not be a one-shot, but to the best of my knowledge it's the only MGM logo with a blue background. The film boasts a major star/director combo working at what many consider low ebb. For me, this will forever remain the duo's most underrated collaboration. If you get this one, you're good!
12.) If this logo means nothing, you're not my kind of reader!
15.) The best for last. The only film to work a gag in before the opening logo fades.
16 - 18.)
