    The opening titles of Valdez Is Coming don’t pick up the typographic choices introduced in the movie posters and the trailer, nor do they reference the book cover of the original novel.

    The titles are set in Hunter, an upright, largely connected script made by Filmotype in the early 1950s. VGC later offered it as A-38. Filmotype Hunter apparently came with a number of alternate glyphs, most notably the s (compare “Lancaster” and “Susan”).

      In a comment to a previous entry on Fonts In Use, Dave Rowland mentions that his font Cinema Script (2016) is based on these title credits. Below is a comparison of a sample of Filmotype Hunter (top) with a resetting in Cinema Script (bottom), the latter with its alternate l (Stylistic Set 01) and s (03):
