Since last week's logo quiz met with such little opposition, why not throw another set of even more brain-ratting studio emblems your way?

The rules remain the same: all of these are one-shot logos associated with a single production. #2 is easily the most difficult, but I'd know that studio-induced rainstorm anywhere. As for #11, of the two other features it has preceded, one was never released and the other is soon-to-be released. Besides, if you don't instantly recognize the name of this titan's production company, I'd hate to see what your video collection looks like.

Have fun and remember -- this is your last chance to beat the other couples, you bet your life!

Sitting this quiz out in memory of Dolores Hope, who died today at the age of 164.

The mausoleum will be closed until further notice...

Agent, you are correct on #s 3, 9, 10, and 11, and JC nailed #8.

7 should be the simplest to detect, because of all the films in the quiz, "Bonnie and Clyde" is easily the most famous.

1 is from "Bosko's Picture Show," the infamous WB cartoon in which our hero can be heard uttering the 'f' word.

While it's certain that there are plenty of wet rocks to be found in "Sincerely Yours," that's not where #2 comes from. I spent an eternity waiting to see a decent print of "7 Men from Now." Long before Prince, the Art Institute of Chicago screened a 35mm print that was so faded, the rain looked purple. Years later, I had the honor of showing a brand new, restored print with Budd in attendance. It was well worth the wait!

s 4 and 6 are from a pair of Jack Lemmon guilty pleasures, "Under the Yum Yum Tree" and "Good Neighbor Sam," respectively.

5. I smell a rat pack: "4 for Texas."

Way ahead of you on the DeSoto logo, Colonna, but even I am not cruel or anal-retentive enough to ask readers to match a commercial bumper to the episode it originally aired on.

All of these caps come from my private stock. These unique logos are tough to find! I should be able to squeeze out one more quiz. Watch the skies!

Bosko's Picture Show - you be the judge: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C2qu9z...

My other guess for #9 was "Corvette Summer" - glad I went with my first instinct.

I'm a fan of Nurdlinger Milk myself. The Hertz scenes alone are worth the price of admission. Once took the audio of Jack Lemmon's reaction to the billboards and placed it over a VHS FBI warning for effect.
