Paramountclassics 02

Logo: As the camera spins around in a blue/pinkish cloudy sky, we see a white light illuminate a blue-tinted Paramountain, from the 1986 Paramount logo without the stars, text, and byline. After working its way to the front, the camera then zooms out to reveal the Paramount gate entrance. The gates then open to reveal the mountain and the words "PARAMOUNT CLASSICS" fade in below.
