Old Hollywood: First logos of the famous film studios

This time I want to travel back in time to show you how the famous logos of the film studious looked many years ago, when it all just began.

Columbia Pictures
Earlier name: A Columbia Production

It is the logo, which is shown before "It Happened One Night", released in 1934. Yes, it isn't the same girl, whom we can see before Columbia Pictures films. And without colours she looks creepy.

Earlier name: Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer

This studio was one of the first to work with Technicolor, but I found its first black-and-white logo. You can see it in such films as "The Big Parade" (1925) or "Ben–Hur" (1925).

Universal Studios
Earlier name: Universal Film Manufacturing Company

This black-and-white logo isn't the first, but it is the earliest one you can find. It was opening films since 1927 till 1936, and you can see it in "The Man Who Laughs" or "Imitation of Life", which was nominated for Best Picture, and many other classic films.

Walt Disney Pictures
Earlier name: Walt Disney Productions

Yes, this logo of Walt Disney Pictures didn't change much. "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs" (1937) was the first full-length animated film, made by Disney, and it has already begun with that castle, which is very familiar now to every child and adult in the world.

20th Century Fox
Earlier name: 20th Century Pictures Inc.

Nothing changed, except for colour and quality. This one is from 1930s, you can see it before "The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes" (1939).
