10. DreamWork Pictures:

9. Columbia Pictures:
The logo of Columbia Pictures came into existence in 1924. This logo has a woman who is standing alone and has a burning torch in her hand. Surprisingly, this logo was based on just a random woman. It was not based on the image of some supermodel which was generally assumed that it would happen. Rather when paid attention it was disclosed that it did not have an image of a single woman but it is a combination of a lot of different models. From 1992, the recent version has been updated which has an image of a very random American housewife whose name is Jennie Joseph.

There are 24 stars because that was the total number of actors who had signed up contracts at that time with the studio. But now the modern version has only got 22 stars and what is the reason behind that no one really knows.
The logo of this company seems very much straightforward. It seems quite like a shield which has the initials of the founder of the company who are The Warner Brothers. But there is a mendacity degree behind that logo because this was not their actual name. As the parents of the owners of the movie studio were, in reality, the immigrants who came from Russian Empire to the America. And However, there’s a degree of mendacity behind it, for this wasn’t their real last name. The parents of the movie studio’s owners were immigrants to America from the Russian Empire and Wonskolaser was their actual last name.
