Hi, I'm trying to find an equivalent for the font used in this (attached) silent movie title card. And, ii the context of a wider search, would anyone know of the fonts used in title cards (I guess, that most of these where hand drawn)?

Like in the other cards:

As always, thanks!

It looks like a slanted version of an old metal font called Packard. I'm not sure if there is a digital version. It's a little hard to Google "packard font"--you get nothing but stuff about HP fonts.

I take that back. Not Packard. Let me get back to you on that.

Ah, here it is. Poor Richard, slanted.

Two great minds in unison.
