Hill/Mandelker Films

1st Logo (May 18, 1981-November 4, 1984)

Nicknames: "hm" "Where's The Hill?"

Logo: On a black background, a blue line shoots down, forming a fancy-looking lowercase “hm”. Below that, “HILL / MANDELKER FILMS” appears below the "hm".

FX/SFX: The "hm" drawing.

Music/Sounds: A descending chime jingle, similar to the Dick Clark Productions jingle.

Availability: Extremely rare; appeared on TV movies from the company, such as The Cartier Affair. On current prints of Stalking Laura (1993), this strangely appears in place of the Leonard Hill Films logo, due to an editing mistake from the distributor, Multicom Entertainment Group.

Editor's Note: None.

Leonard Hill Films (1st era)

2nd Logo (September 16, 1985-March 1, 1993; January 26, 2000)

Nickname: “len hill” "Where's The Hill? II"

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: 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. The early version has a flute and harp tune.

Availability: Seen on a few made-for-TV movies in the 1980's, as well as the short-lived 1987 television series Rags to Riches. The logo would be revived one last time for Hill's final TV film, Stolen from the Heart. Also the early variant at the end 1985 TV movie "Mirrors" on NBC.

Editor's Note: None

Hill/O'Connor Television

3rd Logo (October 11-18, 1988)

Nicknames: "Where's The Hill? III" "The Ruined Rainbow Acronym"

Logo: On a black background, we see rainbow text that says “hill-O'Connor”. Below that, “HILL-O'CONNOR TELEVISION” is there, between two white lines. "IN ASSOCIATION WITH" is seen on the top of the rainbow text.

FX/SFX: None, it's a still logo.

Music/Sounds: The closing of the show.

Availabilty: Only seen on Jack the Ripper.

Editor's Note: None


4th Logo (November 7, 1993-May 19, 1997)

Nickname: “hf” "Where's The Hill? IV"

Logo: On a black background, a long thick to thin line barely almost touching 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 logo forming.

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.

Editor's Note: None.

Leonard Hill Films (2nd era)

5th Logo (2011)

Nickname: "The Skyline" "Where's The Hill...And The Lowercase h?"

Logo: We start out with a bright flash. When it dies down, it reveals a city skyline in front of a background filled with orange-tinted clouds (with some of the sky visible). The camera pans out to reveal that it's behind a moving filmstrip on a metallic background. The filmstrip eventually stops a quarter-way through, and when it does, "LEONARD HILL" and "FILMS" (both in Copperstone Black, the same font used not only on the ACI logo but also the only film that used this logo) fade in, with "LEONARD HILL" fading above the filmstrip and "FILMS" fading below the inside of it shortly thereafter. The name shines, and the logo then fades to black a few seconds later.

FX/SFX: The flash, the camera panning out on the skyline, the moving filmstrip, the company's name fading in and shining.

Music/Sounds: A majestic orchestral fanfare composed by Gad Emile Zeitune.

Availability: Was only seen on one film, Dorfman in Love.

Editor's Note: This logo is a significant departure from the colorful effects (and of course, the lowercase "h") that defined the company's logos.
