It's fairly unlikely you'd have made it here without ever having heard of Jason's previous incarnation. So here you go, talk away...

Interesting blurb on previous usage, never saw those Stooges and Shocking Blue covers before.

Cool article, I hadn't realized that Font had such a history. Thanks for posting!

So far the title frames from "For A Few Dollars More" are the earliest use I've seen of "the font" but I never saw the Stooges connection until Sonic C. posted it.

Glad people still enjoy using it over the years. I converted it to OpenType if anyone is interested in that format also.

I wonder if it originated in Italy - I was subbing an Italian film recently and it popped up again - Unfortunately, I can't remember which one of the three it is - but it's on one of the 'Spirito Santo...' films (there are three of them) It's the exact same font.

No doubt inspired by Leone's masterpiece - it would be interesting to know if there are any sightings that predate For A Few Dollars More...
