Does anybody know what typeface Bergman used for most of his films? It kind of looks like optima, but yet not. Does anyone recognize it?, or know anything about it?
Some examples: The Virgin Spring, The Hour of the Wolf and (the name) Gunnar Bjornstrand.
Thanks in advance!

This source (I can't vouch for its reliability) says it was a custom face.
