CBC Film Sales Corporation
The predecessor to Columbia Pictures was CBC Film Sales Corporation. This company did make a few silent films, but was unpopular. The downfall of this company led to the joke that CBC stood for "Corned Beef and Cabbage".
In 1924, CBC changed to Columbia Pictures. This is the first logo to include the Columbia Lady.
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.
