1st Logo (1985-1993)

Guild Film Distribution.jpg

Logo: Same as the home video counterpart, except for these differences:

  • The Guild logo is a lighter shade of orange.
  • It zooms out farther back.
  • The logo is slightly sped up.
  • The word "Film Distribution" replaces "Home Video".

Technique: Same as the home video counterpart.

Music/Sounds: Same as the home video counterpart, except at a slightly higher pitch (which may or may not have been intentional).

Music/Sounds Variant: In its last year of usage, it used a lush orchestral remix of the 1993 home video theme.

Availability: Rare.

  • It appears on VHS tapes of Guild's first cinema releases, such as Cliffhanger, Last Exit to Brooklyn, Terminator 2: Judgment Day, The Fourth War, Universal Soldier and Rambo III.
  • The later music variant was found on a trailer for Bad Lieutenant, which was seen on the Blu-ray release from Fabulous Films.

2nd Logo (1993-1996)

Logo: Same as the 1993 home video counterpart, but matted to widescreen.

Technique: Same as the home video counterpart.

Music/Sounds: Same as the home video counterpart.

Music/Sounds Variant: On some films it may have used the previous logo's orchestral rendition of the home video theme.

Music/Sounds Trivia: The music was composed using the Korg M1 workstation from 1988.

Availability: Seen on later Guild cinema releases of the era before the company started a merger with Pathé in 1996, such as James and the Giant Peach; the home video counterpart appears on the video release of the film.
