CBC Film Sales Corporation
The predecessor of Columbia Pictures was CBC Film Sales Corporation. The company made a few silent films but was still unpopular. The downfall of this company led to the joke that CBC stood for "Corned Beef and Cabbage".
In 1924, CBC was renamed as Columbia Pictures.
This is the first logo to have the Columbia Lady holding a torch, a concept that continues to be used for the company's subsequent logos, albeit in several modified forms.
This logo (nicknamed "Torch Lady in a Dome") combined elements from its previous logo. It also resembles the certificate vignette used by Screen Gems in 1960.
