Logo: We see a siderurgic industry, where some workers with hammers hitting an iron hot bar. They hit the bar several times while "S.I.E. Films" appears piece-by-piece (in time with the hits). The word "Presenta" appears below while "S.I.E. Films" is shinning.
FX/SFX: The stars forming the text, and the text shinning.
Music/Sounds: A bombastic fanfare made by an orchestra. But in ¡¡Ayuda a Madrid!! the music is the opening of the movie's theme.
Variant: There's a variant in ¡¡Ayuda a Madrid!! where the text of the logo is "C.N.T. F.A.I." in time of "S.I.E. Films".
Availability: In some films like ¡¡Ayuda a Madrid!!, Aurora de esperanza, El cerco de Huesca, Teruel ha caído or La conquista de Carrascal de Chimillas. All of them can be watched on YouTube.
