Leonard Hill FilmsLeonard Hill FilmsLeonard Hill Films

Nickname: “len hill”

Logo: On a black or blue background, a white line shoots down, then curves to form a fancy-looking lowercase “h”. Then, rainbow streaks shoot out to the left and the right at the same time, then flash once they form “len hill”. Below that, “LEONARD HILL FILMS” appears, between two white lines.

Variants:

  • An early version exists that has the rainbow streaks spaced out more and the letters don't flash.
  • A warp speed version was spotted on Rags to Riches.
  • A PAL toned version also exists.

FX/SFX: The forming of the name and the flash.

Music/Sounds: A “whoosh” when the “h” is formed, then a dramatic synthesizer tune. An variant of this tune exists. The early version has a flute theme and a harp note when the name appears.

Availability: Seen on a few made-for-TV movies in the 1980s, as well as the short-lived 1987 television series Rags to Riches. The early version can be found on the 1984 NBC movie, Mirrors. In 2000, this logo would make it's final broadcast television appearance on the CBS movie, Stolen from the Heart.

Editor's Note: None.

Hill/Fields EntertainmentHill/Fields

Nickname: “hf”

Logo: On a black background, a long thick to thin line that almost touches the top of the screen slides in the right side with a trail effect. The other line does the same as before except it points down, slides from the left side and has a hook like end on the top. The lines slide past each other then the line from the left becomes and an "h" with the hook making the right line and "f", making the initials "hf". 2 white lines and the white name "HILL FIELDS" appear with the "f" dividing them in half. Then the name flashes and then fades to black.

FX/SFX: The lines merging and creating the initials, and the name fading below.

Music/Sounds: A synth score. Other examples of this logo have the ending theme of the movie.

Availability: Seen on a few made-for-TV movies from 1993 to 1997 from this company.
