Logo: On a blue, black, or space background, we see a crown on a wireframe globe. Then, "Crown International Pictures" in a script font fades in under it.

Technique: The text fading in.

Music/Sounds: None.

Availability: Rare. Was seen on the film Coach and can be seen on the Pirromount movie Deathrow Gameshow. The Crown International library has been making sporadic appearances on the Showtime channels in recent years, particularly Galaxina (1980) and My Tutor (1986), thanks to Modern Entertainment/Lionsgate (which now distributes the catalog to television and whose logo now appears on them). The version with the blue background can be seen on Don't Answer The Phone and Hustler Squad.
