When I posted a story about the new Paramount 100th logo the other day, movie memorabilia dealer and collector Bruce Hershenson questioned my citation of 1916 as the date of its first use, in print and onscreen. He thought he’d seen instances of it in 1915. I told him that I had, perhaps foolishly, trusted the studio’s official press release. (I have a feeling that they’re referring to the photographed trademark on film, and not the print version.)

I can’t explain why I’ve always loved movie studio logos, but I do, and like some other compulsive film-buff friends, I take note of every minor change and tweak. Paramount has unveiled its new 100th anniversary logo at the head of 'Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol', and it’s very impressive. It will herald every one of the studio’s 2012 releases and remain in use, without the 100th Anniversary caption, thereafter.
