Gaumont Columbia TriStar Home Video (France)

Logo description by PAV123

(1993-Early 2000's)

Logo: On a black background, we see a portrait of the Columbia Pictures torch lady spin in from the top left corner of the screen. The TriStar pegasus portrait does the same from the opposing direction. The words "TRISTAR" and "COLUMBIA" slide in from opposing sides of the screen, only to slightly zoom back and position themselves on their proper portrait. Then, a gradient lilac version of the Gaumont daisy zooms out and spins, situating itself on the top of the logo. The Gaumont text fades in while "HOME VIDEO" slides down from the two portraits and zooms back slightly. A box outline fades in, encasing the logo.

Variant: Since later releases have the warning screen play the theme first, the logo is shortened to the boxes moving in, the box being drawn in and the text appearing from it.

FX/SFX: The text/portrait animation. Yet another example of an early CGI logo.

Music/Sounds: Same as the theme for the Gaumont Columbia RCA Video logo. The later variant has the end of the theme.

Availability: Seen on French prints of material from Columbia and TriStar Pictures.
