It's been some time since one of my emblematic emblem quizzes appeared on The Big Screen. What with the heat climbing to a clammy 82 degrees, I figured that you would prefer to sit schvitzing in front of a fan while looking at pretty pictures rather than eyeballing text.

For the most part, all of these logos are unique to the pictures they launch. I thought about axing the Donald Duck opener -- easily the biggest stumbling block in the whole shebang -- but Technicolor Disney livens up any page, doesn't it?

Here are some clues: Charles Bronson, farting cowboys, the late Marvin Hamlisch's third score as composer, and the David Ooooooooooooooooo. Selznick of Woodland Hills.

Cheaters will be shot at sunrise.

My guess for "Mt. Rushmore": Newman/Poitier?/Streisand/McQueen

Right, but I think the question was WHO were they? ;-)
