Wee Willie Winkie (1937) and
Star! (1968): The logo is in a sepia-tone.
_______________________________________________________________________________________

The Robe (1953):
This movie is "officially" the first CinemaScope movie. It had a new revamped 20th Century-Fox logo at the beginning. There was no fanfare and instead of the dark evening sky, there was a huge dark red curtain behind the logo.
20th Century Fox (1952, The Robe variant)
_______________________________________________________________________________________

The Girl Can't Help It (1956): As the film is CinemaScope and transforms from black and white into color in the opening scene, the 1935 logo is shown with re-orchestrated music.
_______________________________________________________________________________________


Peyton Place (1957): The 1953 logo is in a shade of orange.
_______________________________________________________________________________________

Cleopatra (1963, 2001 DVD): The logo is tinted in amber and is in 3D. Only appears before the DVD menu.

What a Way to Go! (1964): The 1953 logo is tinted in raspberry pink, corresponding to Gene Kelly's character in the film. Also, the "0" is slightly tilted.
20th Century Fox (What a Way to Go!)
_______________________________________________________________________________________

Those Magnificent Men in Their Flying Machines (1965): The opening shows a vaudeville-era curtain with a piano playing. As the 20th Century Fox drums start, the curtain lifts to show the black & white 1935 20th Century Fox logo. The pre-CinemaScope fanfare is played by the piano and an off-kilter trumpet. One of the last films to use the 1935 logo.
Fox - TMMITFM

Deadfall (1968): The 1935 logo is used.

Again, the 1935 logo is used, but it seems to be vaguely flashing through different colors.

20th Century Fox - At Long Last Love (1975)
______________________________________________________________________________________

Silent Movie (1976):
The 20th Century Fox logo is seen about a minute into the movie after the three main characters take the pregnant woman in the car with them; the camera pans, and a 20th Century Fox billboard is seen, but the letter "O" seems to be coming out at the audience, and from it comes a red screen and the opening credits begin.

_______________________________________________________________________________________

All This and World War II (1976)
: Following a series of old 1940s Fox press video clips of various stars and executives supporting the studio and film, the 1935 logo tinted in blue appears for only a second, then fades out to show the word "PRESENTS" in white on a black background. Also, the opening drum roll of the fanfare segues into the opening music of the film.

20th Century Fox Film Corporation - All This and World War II (1976)
_______________________________________________________________________________________

The World's Greatest Lover (1977):
Normal 1953 Fox logo, but the fanfare is a "comic" version.
_______________________________________________________________________________________

The Cannonball Run (1981): A cop chase happens throughout the whole logo. The red car makes itself into the "0" while the cop takes out the last two searchlights. The car comes out of the "0", honks, and laughs. Sadly, this logo is usually edited out of television airings.

_______________________________________________________________________________________

Chariots of Fire (1981):
The 1953 logo is zoomed in and silent. This is very rare and so far has been seen on recent SKY TV and Fox Classics airings; all other prints have had the 1994 logo plastered over
.
_______________________________________________________________________________________

Johnny Dangerously (1984): When the fanfare finishes, the logo freezes and turns into a picture of colorful shapes that form the 1981 logo.

_______________________________________________________________________________________

Revenge of the Nerds (1984): In an obvious homage to Star Wars, the 1953 logo (newer prints have it plastered with the 1981 logo, however) fades to black after ten seconds, but the 1981 fanfare continues playing as we fade into the film's logo, seen on a black background, over which the fanfare finishes.

The Abyss (1989):
The logo is heavily cropped. The film was shot in Super 35, a process that created a widescreen image by cropping the top and bottom portions of the frame. Thus, the pan-and-scan version looks normal.
