Hill/Mandelker Films<embed height="175" src="http://wikifoundrytools.com/wiki/closinglogos/widget/unknown/f3db48a7fce957e0b10f61531a10b28fe7b90315" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="220" wmode="transparent"/>

Nickname: "hm"

Logo: On a black background, a blue line shoots down, forming a fancy-looking lowercase “hm”. Below that, “HILL / MANDELKER FILMS” appears below the "hm".

FX/SFX: The "hm" drawing.

Music/Sounds: A xylophone jingle, similar to the Dick Clark Productions jingle.

: Extremely rare. Appeared on Cartier Affair, which is available on video from Odyssey Video.

Editor's Note: None.


Leonard Hill Films

(September 16, 1985-March 1, 1993)

Nickname: “len hill”

Logo: On a black or blue background, a white line shoots down, then curves to form a fancy-looking lowercase “h”. Then, rainbow streaks shoot out to the left and the right at the same time, then flash once they form “len hill”. Below that, “LEONARD HILL FILMS” appears, between two white lines.

  • An early version exists that has the rainbow streaks spaced out more and the letters don't flash.
  • A warp speed version was spotted on Rags to Riches.
  • A PAL toned version also exists.

FX/SFX: The forming of the name and the flash.

Music/Sounds: A “whoosh” when the “h” is formed, then a dramatic synthesizer tune. An variant of this tune exists. The early version has a flute theme and a harp note when the name appears.

Availability: Seen on a few made-for-TV movies in the 1980s, as well as the short-lived 1987 television series Rags to Riches.

Editor's Note: None.


Hill-Fields Entertainment

(November 7, 1993-May 19, 1997)

Nickname: “hf”

Logo: On a black background, a long thick to thin line barely almost touching the top of the screen slides in the right side with a trail effect. The other line does the same as before except it points down, slides from the left side and has a hook like end on the top. The lines slide past each other then the line from the left becomes and an "h" with the hook making the right line and "f", making the initials, "hf". 2 white lines and the white name "HILL FIELDS" appear with the "f" dividing them in half. Then the name flashes and then fades to black.

FX/SFX: The lines merging and creating the initials, and the name fading below.

Music/Sounds: A synth score. Other examples of this logo have the ending theme of the movie.

Availability: Seen on a few made-for-TV movies from 1993 to 1997 from this company.

Editor's Note: None.
