ITC Edwardian Script might be a bit too fancy:

Balmoral?

It looks like it could easily be related to Steinweiss Scrawl, and old Photolettering Inc font. I there there is a contemporary version similar to it.

Jared's sample is Adobe's Bickham Script.

Steve C. i didn't ignore you. i said thatnks to everyone. that included you. but that adobe face is to much, extremely fancy and the ANAL customer told me first off that he didn't want any thing that fancy, he wants a script, but with a plain feel. ?????? basicly i told him he would have to find a style he like himself. he keeps knocking every thing i show him so i told him to go else where. thanks everyond including Steve C! =)

Yo Steve G. No worries at all. Just wanted to be
sure you saw the post previous to:

"Jared, whats the name of the font @ http://creative.gettyimages.com/source/fonts/ ?"

Good move on dropping the client. Seems he's
more trouble than he'd be worth.

LOL.

The new T'phile promotional material will
read, "Need help with an anal customer? Click

We're not leaving you hanging here, Steve! That's just a hard order to fill- Stay tuned, I'm sure someone can track something in the ballpark down.
