"if..." movie logo

Can anyone identify the font used in the logo of the movie "if...."? I don't have a better sample, unfortunately. I tried attaching it, but it wouldn't let me, so, I've inserted it in the post, instead.

Naw, straight top of the i and unbracketed serifs.

looks a lot like ITC Tiffany Heavy, but not exactly the same.

It does look sort of like this or that, but I don't see any matches. I think it could be custom drawn, given the time it's from. It's only two letters, after all.

perhaps it's squooshed Tiffany?

[edit] with a numeral 1 instead of the body of the lc i?

The reason I don't think it's based on Tiffany is the square ends on the serifs. Tiffany has round ends on the serifs. Otherwise, I agree there is some similarity. The top of the f is very similar to Poster Bodoni (a.k.a. Ultra Bodoni), but the bracketed serifs and the top of the i are very not Bodoni. It also has some similarity to very bold Caslons, but the top of the f is not like Caslon at all.

i noticed that too, but unless he's looking for the exact precise match (which might not exist), Tiffany is a pretty good alternative.

by the way, here's a somewhat better look at it, where you clearly see that the serifs are square unlike Tiffany.

I remember seeing a "more fonts like this" option link at Myfonts, but when you click on that for the Tiffany family, *you would not believe* the mish-mash that is brought up, including graffiti fonts.
So much for that bright idea.
