* Back in the 60s and 70s, Creator/{{Paramount}} Pictures was owned by a conglomerate called Gulf & Western (or "Gulf+Western", going by their logo); in addition to Paramount, they owned clothing manufacturers, car parts factories, financial services firms, cigar makers, sugar plantations, the list goes on. They even owned Creator/{{Sega}} for a time, and New York's famous Madison Square Garden arena (and their associated sports teams). Eventually, former Paramount head Martin Davis became head of the company and realized they ought to focus on their most profitable subsidiary- Paramount and its' collection of smaller companies (including Famous Music, Simon & Schuster books, and MSG); as a result, all the industrial and consumer companies were sold off and the company was renamed ''Paramount Communications'' in 1989; they eventually acquired a bunch of medium and small market TV stations and a chain of theme parks (both previously owned by Taft Broadcasting), and in 1994 merged with Creator/{{Viacom}}.
