    ....that in the movie The Perfect Storm - the boat lettering for sailing vessel Mistral is lettered with the font Mistral also?

    I'm way too much into typography.:cool1:

    I always look at the fonts used on nearly every movie. Title fonts, credit fonts and any fonts used in scenes of the movies. I also have the affliction.

    I remeber being a kid and reallly being into the fonts used in Movie titles.
    I think that may have gotten me into lettering in the first place.

    There's even a site devoted to fonts from movies and such

    lol. Never noticed that in particular but my wife sure hates it when we walk through a mall or store and I identify all of the different fonts on logos and signage.

    Thanks,
    Kurt
