Wondering about Paramount Pictures.

I bet that all of you at one time or another have seen a Paramount film, either at a movie theater or on TV.  They have been in business with the Paramount name for a hundred years, and two more under another name.  I am sure you also recognize their logo, but did you know it has changed over the years?  This is the original logo:

Then later, it was changed to this next one with the company owner's name at the bottom "A Viacom Company".

This is the most recent logo.  Quite a difference.

And the artist standing beside one of his paintings:

I especially like the way he painted the mountain's reflection in the lake.  He also did a fantastic job of painting the sky.  I think the painting in the last picture is better than the one with the Paramount logo on it.  They are both very well done and I sure would be proud to do work like that.  Now, you all have a great day, today, you hear?

  1. The last logo shown is really beautiful. I have never been much of a movie goer, so I didn't realize the changes in logo over the years.

  2. I too don't frequent movie theaters. Think'n the last one was when ET came out. That's a couple years ago, right?

    Me an' my youngest used to sit outside a theater "people watch'n". Does that count? The last logo, I could camp there.

    1. Oh yeh, I sure could enjoy camping on the edge of that lake and catching cut-throat trout for breakfast. Buckwheat pancakes and cut-throat trout make a good breakfast. Hat that one time when I was in Yellowstone.

    1. Yep, the lion was in a circle, if I remember correctly. But today was Paramount's 100th birthday.

    1. I was looking for something that happened or began on this day of the year in history and found the logo.
