Anyone have a lead on the typeface used for the Lion in Winter movie poster? Not sure if it was ever digitized.

Apologies if this isn't helpful, but I found a hi-res image of the poster and I'm pretty sure the title and top billings are hand-drawn.  Each letter with multiples is slightly different-- The three capital "I's", two capital "E's", three capital "N's" and two capital "T's".


To me it's hand drawn inspired by Albertus and Lydian with serifs and an uncial E.

Thanks @cashpoor! Indeed, I don't think its ever been digitized. I was able to take a basic stab at it. I called it "Lion Headline" 😎 h/t: @Ina Saltz
