    Special silver glitter one sheet (27″×40″) poster for Buffalo 66 (Lions Gate, 1998). From Empire:

    Billy Brown (Gallo), just out of prison, returns to his grim hometown of Buffalo, New York, and impulsively grabs Layla (Ricci), a tap dance student, because he has told his parents he is away on government work and needs someone to pretend to be the wife he claims to have married. Surprisingly, Layla goes along with the scheme and works hard to impress Billy’s weird parents, football-obsessed mom (Anjelica Huston) and brutal crooner dad (Ben Gazzara).

    From the movie title – with letters enhanced with actual glitter – to the billing block, all typography is set with Compacta, ranging from the narrow Light (billing block) via Bold (credits with shadow effects) to the extended Black style, used for the movie title. Light and narrow were part of Letraset’s initial release of Compacta in 1963; the Black style was added in 1976.
