"Targets" wide very bold grotesque

Looks like Swiss 721 Black Extended but the R and G are different.

It's almost Arial-like, but I'm assuming it's older than that.

reminds me of Annonce except the ‘G’.

What's the origin of this image? If it's Condierge magazine then it's Vonness.

It's a frame garb from the title sequence of "Targets" (1968) starring Boris Karloff. I'm suspecting it's an alternate version of Swiss 721 Black Extended - except, as I said, for the R & G.

1968? That rules out Swiss 721 Black Extended completely, as this is Bitstream's digital version of Helvetica and Bitstream didn't even exist back then. This indeed matches Annonce Gothic -- except for the G of course. Berthold Venus has a similar spurless G, but some other key characteristics like the angled finials don't match.
