1st Logo (April 4, 1980-October 9, 1992)

Visuals: There is a man with a fixated stare on his face (played by Orson Welles). 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 "AN INTERNATIONAL RAINBOW PICTURE" in an arc wipe in and "A JAGFILM" fades in below.

Trivia: This is sourced from the film A Safe Place, starring Orson Welles and directed by Henry Jaglom, who is also the owner of this studio. This scene is featured in the trailer for said film.


  • For the most part, the logo is cropped.
  • On Venice/Venice, the words "A RAINBOW RELEASE" replace "A JAGFILM".

Technique: Mostly live action, with motion-controlled animation and fading effects for the text.

Audio: None.

Availability: Seen on films from this period starting with Sitting Ducks and up until Venice/Venice. However, this logo does not appear on Can She Bake a Cherry Pie?.

2nd Logo (April 4, 1980-December 8, 1983)

Visuals: The logo nearly follows the same behavior as the Rainbow Pictures logo except the logo is yellow and appears letter-by-letter; the text is in the Broadway font.

Variant: On Can She Bake a Cherry Pie?, the logo is black with no shadow effect and the text "A JAGFILM" is added underneath.

Technique: Motion-controlled animation.

Audio: The ending theme of the movie.

Availability: Only seen at the end of Sitting Ducks and Can She Bake a Cherry Pie?. Like with the company's other logos, it is preserved on on-demand prints such as Tubi.
