This looks a lot like Poor Richard and Metropolis, but isn't quite either one of them. What is the official name when the "t" and "h" in "The" are linked?
Many thanks--I'm a novice font fanatic.
I meant "movie" poster.
The reason it doesn't look exactly like any font is that it was probably hand lettered, not typeset.

Welcome to Typophile.
I’m afraid I can’t help you on this one.
Where is this from (how old is it)?
Could it be pre-digital? It could be hand-drawn as well.
I suggest you post font ID requests on the Type ID Board so all of the other experts get their chance and your chances to get this identified get much better.
Thanks to the 2 experts who concur that this was probably hand-lettered. It is from the original movie poster for the Wizard of Oz, which is a 1939 movie.
Also, thanks for educating me on a "ligature."
