i apologize if this has been asked before, but i searched and couldn't find anything.

i know that these were all hand lettered, but i am wondering if anyone can suggest a modern digital font that is similar to the brush lettering used in the titles on any of these posters.

thanks

Bello is quite good, I think, for "THE Maltese Falcon." Off the top of my head, I'd look through Sudtipos' stuff; they have a number of script typefaces that might have a similar character.

Flash
Holly Script
Coronet
Futura Script
Blizzard
Metroscript
and Mark Simonson's upcoming Kinescope and Launderette which is based on the titles from Laura! Incidentally, the best way to recreate these is with a hand drawn script and Mark's your man.
