Sigma III Corporation
Sigma III Corporation was an independent film distributor that was owned at one time by Filmways. It closed down sometime in the early/mid 1970's.
Nicknames: "ΣIII", "The Splitting Arrow"
Logo: On a black background, we see three blue rectangles appearing one by one, forming a Roman numeral "III". A red arrow slides and moves over the "III", then two arrow pieces split, and move the bottom arrow piece to the top, forming an uppercase sigma (Σ) symbol. The words:
fades in below, with "A SIGMA 3" in big and the rest of the letters in small.
Early Variant: On Greetings, the text fades in below the logo instead:
A FILMWAYS COMPANYpresents
"SIGMA III" is bigger, and the rest of the letters are smaller, with "A FILMWAYS COMPANY" in a condescended font.
FX/SFX: The rectangles moving, the arrow sliding and splitting, the text fading in.
Availability: Seen on films Sigma III Corporation distributed. It was kept intact on Greetings (1968) and Hi Mom (1970).
