Background: This is the production company of the late Richard D. Zanuck, his wife Lili Fini Zanuck, and (at one point) Jerry Perenchio.
(December 15, 1989-December 17, 2008) Nicknames: "Z of Doom", "Red Z", "Z for Zanuck"
Logo: On a gradually zooming black background, a Z is drawn stroke by stroke. During the drawing of the last stroke, the letters "THE ZANUCK COMPANY" fade in one by one.
Variant: At the end of Yes Man, the logo is still.
FX/SFX: The drawing and letters fading in. 2D animation.
Cheesy Factor: For 1989, there could have been better animation.
Music/Sounds: A whoosh followed by a synth chord ending with some bells. None for the still version.
Availability: Appears on Driving Miss Daisy, Rush, and Mulholland Falls, among others. Most of the time, The Zanuck Company doesn't use a logo.
Scare Factor: Low to medium. The dark atmosphere and the music may put off some.
