I used to call the "torch lady" the "Statue of Liberty" when I was little! LOL. BTW, does anyone know why she was listed under the name SCREEN GEMS when some of the 1936 episodes and earlier were aired on TV?
"Listed under the name"...? Not sure what you mean by that, but the Columbia Torch Lady was never called Screen Gems
Columbia created Screen Gems as a distribution subsidiary for its cartoons in the '40s. After the in-house animation division was closed in the early '50s, Screen Gems was reorganized as Columbia's television division, initially to syndicate the studio's film library to TV, and then as a TV production subsidiary during the '50s-'70s (FATHER KNOWS BEST, THE DONNA REED SHOW, DENNIS THE MENACE, BEWITCHED, THE MONKEES, I DREAM OF JEANNIE, THE PARTRIDGE FAMILY, many more...). Screen Gems also operated as a network distributor for Hanna-Barbera's primetime series during the 1960s.
Sony currently uses the Screen Gems brand for theatrical distribution of independent, art-house and documentary films.
When the Columbia shorts were syndicated in 1958, Screen Gems logos were edited onto the films.
