Have you ever wanted to know just how these intros were created? Well, when it comes to the MGM movie intro, it was quite a simple setup that you will definitely think is hilarious yet awesome. I have found a few images of the actual event when they shot the videos, and a few images of the different lions they have used through the years to update and refine their now legendary introduction video. Let yourself be inspired because as you can see anything is possible with the help of a creative mind. Pure awesomeness!
A different logo, a circular still graphic image of a lion known as "The Stylized Lion", appeared on three films in the 1960s: (1966), (1968), and (1968). Leo was reintroduced after this logo was discontinued. The Stylized Lion, however, was retained by the division and was also used as a secondary logo on MGM film posters, in addition to being shown at the end of credit rolls following most MGM movie releases of this period. It was later used by the casinos. (A refined version of it is used as the logo for their parent company, .)
THE MYSTERIANS, 1959. Original MGM version Movie Poster This Japanese movie released by Toho Studios portends to be the “The greatest science fiction picture ever conceived by the mind of man”. Definitely one for the cult collectors.
