Samuel Goldwyn Films is the current independent film company of Samuel Goldwyn, Jr. formed in 1999, two years after his former production company was folded into MGM and transferred most of the library into it, even though he started producing and distributing independent movies later on. Now, his son Tony co-runs the company after his father died on January 9, 2015. Currently, Sony Pictures Home Entertainment handles the home entertainment rights of most of the SGF releases.

(January 22, 1999- )

Nickname: "The Signature"

It's exactly the same as The Samuel Goldwyn Company logo, except the text "SAMUEL GOLDWYN FILMS" fades in below the "Samuel Goldwyn" name.

  • In 2012, an enhanced version was introduced, with a shadow effect behind the Samuel Goldwyn script. This was designed by Rarevision, a Los Angeles-based effects company.
  • A still version with a black background was seen on Wait For Your Laugh: The Rose Marie Story.

Just like The Samuel Goldwyn Company logo, simple animation.

Music/Sounds: Just the same dramatic fanfare from The Samuel Goldwyn Company logo.

Music/Sounds Variants:
  • On MirrorMask, the jingle is fast-paced.
  • In some cases, the movie's theme is used or is silent.

Availability: Common. It's seen on many SGF releases such as The King of Masks, MirrorMask, Seraphim Falls, Kirk Cameron's Saving Christmas, and Super Size Me, among others. Also seen on a MoviePlex print of South Pacific (not the Samuel Goldwyn Company logo seen on 1980s/1990s TV prints). The black background variant was seen on a May 2018 Me-TV airing of Wait For Your Laugh: The Rose Marie Story.

Editor's Note:
Same as The Samuel Goldwyn Company logo
