Hollywood old style font?

Feb 16, 2012 at 15:47

I've been searching for a while on Google, but without any luck. The type of font I'm looking for is that old style slanted Hollywood text. Any ideas of a font similar to that style? Preferably free, but both free and paid would be fine

Thanks,
Jack

What do you mean by "Old style slanted Hollywood" ?

I'm sure that Hollywood used to use this style of title, but I may be horrifically wrong. I'm just looking for a font like that

It's also used on the game LA Noire, if you've ever played that. That's where the second picture is from. However I know that font's name: Heroic Condensed, but it's flipping pricey!

For free fonts, you might want to take a look here : http://www.dafont.com/theme.php?cat=501&fpp=50&text=BUYER+BEWARE

You might find something interesting.

I found the font anyway.

Thanks

$30...

"flipping pricy"... coming from someone who uses an Apple computer, let me laugh.

I saw that you could buy the weights separately after I posted. Anyway, just because I own a mac doesn't mean I have oodles of money to spend on typefaces, and when did I state I had a mac in the first place? :P

Big Brother is watching you, even in the UK

Anyway, you're right, if you own a Mac, you don't have money to spend on typefaces, because you don't have money anymore

Thank you for your wondrous help, Frederic
If you know of any free fonts that you generally think I should own, I'm always expanding my library!

Nothing, there're just two cats now here, the "elder one" and the "eldest one"...
