yellow and becomes the star on a Christmas tree.

The logo is superimposed on a street floor.
Paramount Pictures - Sunset Boulevard (1950)

Alpine for You (Popeye short, 1951): An end gag that may have started it all. Bluto is on this mountain top, and then Popeye grabs the mountain top (with Bluto on it), with a lasso. He then punches Bluto and lets go of the mountain top, and stars emerge from Bluto's head and form the Paramount logo, as the words "A Paramount Picture" and "Color by TECHNICOLOR" appear below Bluto. Popeye later appears from the bottom of the screen and blows his pipe.

Popeye, the Ace of Space (Popeye short, 1953): The closing features Popeye smoking his pipe, making the Paramount logo. It was also credited as a "Stereotoon".
_______________________________________________________________________________________

Rear Window (1954): At the end of the film, the curtains of the Jimmy Stewart character's windows close and the Paramount text and stars are projected over the courtyard. This little vignette, reminiscent of the first shot when the curtains open, was removed when Universal acquired the film (which damaged the visual and narrative flow), but was later restored.

Red Garters (1954):
After a few seconds, "A Paramount Picture" fades out, leaving only the stars and the background. The stars spin for a moment, then twenty stars "fly" away from the logo and the other four fade into four lamps inside a stage.

War and Peace (1956): A different representation of the mountain appears. The clouds don't move and the mountain is less realistic than the standard logo.

Paramount - War & Peace (1956)
_____________________________________________________________________________

The Ten Commandments (1956): A different reddish-brown mountain (intended to be Mount Sinai) appears with a red sky, with the words "Paramount Presents" in gold and moved to the top near the stars. The words "A CECIL B. DE MILLE PRODUCTION", also in
gold appear below. The logo was designed by artist Arnold Friberg, who also developed the typeface for the main titles.
Paramount Pictures-The Commandments (1956)
_______________________________________________________________________________________

The Buccaneer (1958): It's the Paramount mountain from the time, only this time the font has slightly changed and seems more "handwritten", and the name is not stretched to fit in the circle of stars. The stars on the mountain are also gray. Under the Paramount name are the words "SUPERVISED BY" in a Roman font and "Cecil B. DeMille" in DeMille's signature handwriting.

The Godfather (1972):
The second and third drafts of the screenplay had this description: "The PARAMOUNT logo is presented austerely over a black background". However, most VHS releases had no logo.

On the 2008 Coppola Restoration DVD/Blu-ray, the 2002 logo is used, but in sepia tone.
Paramount Pictures - Godfather Restored
_______________________________________________________________________________________

Charlotte's Web (1973): On the VHS version of this film, there is a special animated and bylineless version of the 1986 logo. On a blue gradient background with light blue filmstrips, the Paramount script logo in gold starts writing itself. We then zoom out to see 22 yellow stars which usually encircle the mountain in the movie logo. After that, the Paramount script logo turns white and the filmstrips turn into a picture of the 1986-2002 logo without the stars, text, and byline. As the logo plays throughout, a voice-over says "Paramount Pictures, bringing you the finest in holiday entertainment and the best of the new year." This was also seen on any other Paramount video, such as Ghost, The Addams Family, and Wayne's World, that you might have purchased at participating McDonald's restaurants during the 1993 holiday season.

The Godfather Part II (1974):
Like on The Godfather, the logo is presented austerely over a black background, though the regular version of the logo is shown at the end. The 1994 VHS release had the normal 1974 logo instead, however.

On the 2008 Coppola Restoration, the 2002 logo is exactly the same as on The Godfather.
_______________________________________________________________________________________

Nashville (1975): Similar to the White Dawn variant, but with the 1974 logo instead and the image looks more shaky. The scratchy effect was reportedly achieved when director Robert Altman took the negative with the logo on it, threw it onto the ground, and stomped on it.
Paramount - Nashville (1975)

Hustle (1975), Leadbelly (1976), The Last Tycoon (1976), and Looking for Mr. Goodbar (1977): The 1975 logo plays normally, but the text "Paramount", the mountain and the blue near-circle are smaller, and the stars are larger.

There is also a cameo appearance by the 1975 Paramount logo during the film on an airplane in-flight movie, consisting of the Peanuts Gang sitting on chairs on the plane, and on a screen, we see a movie countdown leader parody, followed by a shot of the finished Paramount mountain logo (albeit with the Gulf+Western byline in blue instead of the usual white).

Tomorrow, When the War Began (2010): The logo is cut down to just 2 seconds of the stars whooshing past and 2 seconds of the byline fading in. The Viacom byline is in its 1990-2005 font and the mountain is zoomed in so the tops of the highest 4 stars aren't seen (this is possibly an error in using the logo in the wrong aspect ratio).
_______________________________________________________________________________________

Transformers: Dark of the Moon (2011): After the logo is done, the camera pans up into space, segueing into the opening titles.
_______________________________________________________________________________________

Paranormal Activity 3 (2011): The 1986 logo plays during the closing credits, but with the new Viacom byline. The standard closing logo appears at the end.
Paramount Pictures (Paranormal Activity 3 variant)
_______________________________________________________________________________________

Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol (2011): The first movie to use the "100 Years" logo. The fanfare is re-orchestrated to sound more dramatic.

Hugo (2011):
The logo is tinted a frosty blue.

_______________________________________________________________________________________

The Avengers (2012):
The "100 years" logo emerges from giant blue energy waves, and is cut to the stars circling the peak. The logo dissolves into the blue energy when it finishes.

_______________________________________________________________________________________

World War Z (2013):
The current logo is in a bluish color.
_______________________________________________________________________________________

Pain & Gain (2013): The logo is bylineless.
_______________________________________________________________________________________

Nebraska (2013): The 1953 "A Paramount Release" logo is used with the Viacom byline (in its 2005-present font) below.
Paramount (2013) - "Nebraska"

Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones (2014):
The logo glitches like a video camera.

The image for the Alpine For You variant is too small. It needs to be large
I remember watching Imagine That and it had the Paramount On Parade fanfare from Mean Girls instead of silent.
On a 1996 Paramount family preview, after the 1995 logo the same as the Laughing Bunnies variant is used but with the Paramount logo from the time instead of the 1975 logo. Then, the rest starts.

On at least one episode, there is an extended version of the fanfare and the logo stays on screen for an extra second.
