    I'm looking for a font similar to what was used in the old Casablanca posters. I believe this was a custom, hand drawn font - but I want something that will have a similar feel. I'm doing an invitation to a Casablanca themed party, and I want to mirror the style of the Casablanca movie poster. Any suggestions. I've uploaded a graphic of the font in question. Thaks so much!

    Although not freeware, you can take a look at House Industries Sign Painter Collection here:

    If it only needs to be similar, it probably already sits in your machine. Tried the Brush Script?

    My guess is that the font in the original poster was not a font, but hand painted by a pro. Not that it helps or anything, but that's how it was done then. Plus, look at the "a"s...slightly different, each one.

    As for a close free match , you might also try Machine Script.

    Yes, it was hand-made. And an inspiration to many font designers thereafter.

    Hi Stephanie, after looking at it I have to agree with Koeiekat that as near as damn it is Brush script. Not exact but not that far. Have fun at the party!
