Can anyone recognise this beautiful font I saw on an old movie
could be custom..
This appears to be the title frame from a series produced by the BBC and Universal Television between 1972 and 1974. I don't know the name of the font (if it is one), but at least you can rule out anything designed since the early 70s. 1974 was still pre-digital, so it may have been handlettered; that was not unusual at that time.
Perhaps a simplified generic Fraktur widened & hand cut for a stencil?
