Films with Typefaces From the Wrong Time Period

Hello. I've been lurking here for several years, but never logging on. I've gotten great help from everyone here for that long just from reading all the wonderful posts here. So firstly, thank you for being amazing people.

I had a question that has been bothering me for a good long while.

Have any of you ever encountered a typeface in a film or other work that did not belong in the setting's time period? Especially if it just wasn't invented during the era in the film?

WANTED: A movie typophile: An Interview for a student magazine ; "Typography in movies"


We're 3 second year graphic design students from Kymenlaakso University of Applied Sciences, from Kouvola, Finland. We are making our own student magazine as a school project and the subject of the magazine will be about graphic design. The magazine will also be published in the internet. (We'll announce it later.)

We have chosen typography in movies as our subject for the magazine.

We would like to find some people, who are somehow involved with typography in movies; whether you're very enthusiastic about it or even working with typography in movies to interview. We'd hope to learn more about this subject through your views and opinions. It would also be interesting to hear about your work or projects.

Thank you in advance!

a Good match for Klavika



I've done some research but not sure if I'm choosing the right aesthetic choice. Being a student Graphic Artist for some time now, yet I still have much to learn.

My question, I'm designing a film-magazine cover, contents, and several spreads for my portfolio to graduate from school this year. Moreover, I have selected Mr. Olson's Klavika typeface for call-outs, headlines etc, but I;m not sure what serif face I use for body copy that will compliment Klavika. As of this moment I'm using Caslon 240 I believe.

Are there any suggestions that I may consider?
