    Condensed caps from Davison Epanoul (1963) used for the all-star cast on the posters for The Yellow Rolls-Royce, including Ingrid Bergman, Rex Harrison, Alain Delon, George C. Scott, Jeanne Moreau, Omar Sharif, and Shirley MacLaine. While the movie logo is probably custom script lettering, “Everything happens in … the yellow Rolls-Royce!” seems to be in caps from Folio schmalfett. The right-aligned monikers in the poster version shown above are set in Akzidenz-Grotesk, or Standard, as it was known in the United States.
