Puck Film Productions

Logo description by bigladiesman

Background: Puck Film Productions was independent and irreverent director Kenneth Anger's (author of Hollywood Babylon book series) own production company.

1st (known) Logo (1964-1973?)

Logo: On a black background, a white, card with round edges showing a large word "PUCK" written on it fades in. Below, "Film Productions" in a fancy handwritten font can be seen. There is a drawn boy dressed in a frock coat and wearing a top hat leaning against the P. He holds a giant quill that has a gray banner attached with the text (in fancy handwritten font as well) "What fools these Mortals be!", a line from the character Puck on Shakespeare's "A Midsummer Night's Dream" (for the record, Anger claims he made an uncredited appearance on the 1935 film version of this play as The Changeling Prince).

Variant: On Lucifer Rising (1973), the logo appears on the red cover of a book. The banner is light blue instead of gray

Technique: None; it's a still logo, and a very ugly one.

Music/Sounds: None.

Availability: Fairly scarce; can be spotted on prints of Anger's short feature Scorpio Rising.
