Indiana Jones films and the Paramount logo

I love how Kingdom of the Crystal Skull used the old 1970s Paramount logo in order to match all the other Indy films, but I was watching Last Crusade recently and it got me to thinking. By 1989 Paramount wasn't using the old school logo, then I thought: Were they even using it in 1981? Was the logo used on Raiders a retro old-school logo even in 1981 or were they still using the old-school logo in 1981?

Can anyone clear this up for me?

That would be my guess.

Re: Indiana Jones films and the Paramount logo

The official logo was a white outline of the mountain on blue background and used officially by Paramount through late 1986.

From '86 to 2002, an updated version was used with a little modification for the 75th Anniversary of the studio.

Raiders used a modified version of '54 to '69 version of the logo.
