Gaumont Franco Film Aubert Logo.svg

A previous belief was that the symbol on the middle-left is the logo for Pathé-Gaumont-Metro-Actualités, which was a joint venture between Pathé, Gaumont, and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer. This has been proven false, as it was now attributed to Franco Film Aubert, and their Gaumont Franco Film Aubert joint venture. The symbol on the right appeared to be a naked man holding reels with filmstrips. It is unknown what the bird stands for.
