Visuals: On a black background, there is a searchlight moving from left to right (a la the 20th Century Fox and the 1990 King World logos) and moving back to the left side. Later, there are another searchlight on the left side as it criss-crosses with the other searchlight as it moves to the right side revealing the word "PRESTIGE" with a shadow effect. As the searchlight moves back to the left side, the searchlight reveals a stretched out thin diamond with the byline "A DIVISION OF MIRAMAX FILMS". All the the text is in blue/white gradient.

Technique: Simple '90s animation.

Audio: None.

Availability: Can be found on U.S. releases of The Miracle, American Dream, Tatie Danielle, and Uranus, among others.
