1956 French Film Créa La Femme (And God created woman) Title Credits type?

Can anyone help me ID this typewriter-looking font from the 1956 French film Et Dieu… Créa La Femme (And God created woman) starring Brigitte Bardot?

I've attached some screen caps from the online video (low res) or view the video here:

Follow up question: is there a digital version available anywhere?



The a, and obviously that deliciously quirky g are the most difficult characters to match. Some possibilities that can give a similar feel if not a proper resemblance:

Great find! Someone should digitize this and call it "Bardot."

One close suggestion is Nick Shinn's Bodoni Egyptian.

It's also got really short ascenders - which is not normal. I agree the g is awesome! also check out the d. Fun!

Simon, maybe you should try to get some hi-res screen captures of this (rent the DVD!) and work on digitizing this. A great project.

Good idea! :-)
