Nicknames: "The Psychopath", "Evil Orson", "Jack Nicholson's Evil Cousin", "The Jesus Christ Man"

Logo: We see a psychotic-looking man (Orson Welles himself) with a fixated stare on his face. He holds a small yellow box in his left hand and a small cardboard rainbow in his right hand, which he pulls completely out of the box, as the camera zooms in. When the camera gets close enough, it freezes, and the words "A RAINBOW RELEASE" (in white) slowly appear letter-by-letter in an arc.

Trivia: This was actually sourced from a film called A Safe Place, starring Orson Welles and directed by Henry Jaglom, who is also the owner of this studio. Also, you can see the scene in the trailer of it, which you can find it <a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dT-9eeQz17A" target="_self">here</a>.

Variant: On the 2001 film Festival in Cannes, the logo is cropped a bit, and "A RAINBOW RELEASE" is replaced by "A RAINBOW PICTURE". Also the text has finally been put in a fixed position (it fits the rainbow), and it doesn't remain on-screen like the previous logo. It's also noticeably brighter

FX/SFX: It's mostly live-action, except for the letters appearing.

Music/Sounds: None.

Availability: Rare. Seen on the 1995 film Last Summer in the Hamptons, and on the 2001 film Festival in Cannes.

Editor's Note:This logo has scared many, due to the absence of music, and the evil looking man in the logo. The text, however, (except for the later version) doesn't fit in the rainbow.
