Ever wondered how MGM shot their iconic opening credits? Based on this historical photo, the method was fairly simple. All they did was take Leon the Lion, put him in the actual studios and record him roaring at the camera. Apparently, it only took one take back in 1928. It’s surprising that Leo didn’t get up and kill anyone. It was certainly much easier when they just used a lion as a logo. At the end of the day, a small risk can go a long way.
