Good Bad Man

Historic Revival Silent Film Font

This historic revival font was created especially for use in the preservation and restoration of the 1914 silent film “The Good Bad Man,” starring Douglas Fairbanks. There is only one copy of the original film print in existence, and when the film was restored for a screening at the San Francisco Film Festival in 2014 the new font was created to best recreate the intent of the original lettering in the film. It is a smooth and pleasant vintage lettering style, originally designed for use on silver screens, now fully rendered in OpenType and ready for you to use in your designs or web pages today. You can read a bit more about the historic font at The Atlantic!
