GGRC International

From Audiovisual Identity Database


Background: GGRC ("Gay Girls Riding Club") International was an American film company that formed somewhere in the 1960's that mainly focused on making drag parodies of movies that were popular at the time. They possibly dissolved around the 1970s. Their films where later used as archival footage for Something Weird Video's "Gay Camp Classics" Vol. 1 and Vol. 2.

1st Logo (1960)

Logo: On a black background we see a oval with a ribbon that reads "A GGRC Production" a la Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, inside there's the footage of a women with a costume that resembles the Columbia pictures lady. The angry women thrown the torch, which makes the scenary to "explode". The dizzy women then leaves.

Technique: Live action for the lady.

Music/Sounds: The 20th Century Fox Fanfare.

Availability: Only seen on Always on Sunday, not in relation to the 1965 film of the same name.

2nd Logo (1963)

Logo: On a black gradient background, we see a strange silhouette. After a few moments, it lights up and reveals to be a drawing of a sculpture (similar to the 20th Century Fox logo), where "GGRC" appears above, "International Production" under, and "A" on the top right corner. Some searchlights are seen behind.

Technique: Simple animation.

Music/Sounds: Same as above, but extended.

Availability: Seen on GGRC's parody of "What Ever Happened to Baby Jane" called What Really Happened To Baby Jane.

3rd Logo (1969-1972)

Logo: On a cloudy background, we see a brown-stone sculpture with "A" floating above "GGRC" and "International Production" in black below. Some searchlights are seen behind the sculpture. The logo zooms slowly.

Technique: The zooming.

Music/Sounds: Same as the last two logos.

Availability: Seen on All About Alice and Les Boys.
