6th Logo
(August 28, 1946-May 8, 1964)

Nickname: "Rotating ('40s) Globe", "50s Globe", "Christmas Universal Globe", "I'm Dreaming of an Universal Christmas"

Logo: On a space background, a model globe (harkening back to logo 2; still no clouds though), rotates. Superimposed onto the globe are the words "Universal International" (in white for B&W films or yellow-orange for color films) in a majestic script font, symbolizing Universal's merger with International Pictures.

Byline: Later on, the credit "EDWARD MUHL, IN CHARGE OF PRODUCTION" would appear in the lower-left corner.

Closing Variant: Same as above, but the disclaimer is "A Universal-International Picture".

FX/SFX: The rotating globe.

Cheesy Factor: Well, they got sane with this one. Relatively minimal on the cheesy scale, though you can tell it's a model globe.

Music/Sounds: The opening of the movie's theme. However, the Christmas bells are sometimes used. Notable memorable instances include "The Egg and I" and "The Naked City".

Availability: Again, seen on Universal International releases of the period.

Scare Factor: None.
