Here are my two to offer:

Rugby, free for the download from a guy who took it from a British psychedelic rock band's cover art, but also notes that it's the same as from For a Few Dollars More.

Comrade, which costs money, but reminds me of something you'd see in a Leone movie.

They both look great I think the Comrade is the closest.

By the way anybody know how to create your own fonts?

You're welcome. I needed a font for the logo for my fantasy baseball team.

On the subject of making your own fonts -- It's possible, but difficult. I made one of my own handwriting. I wouldn't want to do another one...too much tiny detail work.

This is developing into an interesting topic since I've been paying attention to the titles and the theater adds.

That Eastwood font is the one that in my mind is associated with both AFOD & FAFDM, even though in the actual films the titles were different.

Actually there is a similar font to Eastwood that was used for the Death Rides A Horse theater adds particularly the main character names "Lee Van Cleef" and "John Phillip Law" its close but its own style.

GBU & OUTITW used old west style fonts in the title sequences and their ads.

The Gui La Testa Italian add had the title in a graffiti style as if painted on a wall with a brush that was running out of paint, the dry brush effect, the Fistful of Dynamite had the old west style, don't remember what they used for the Duck You Sucker title.

I think all these that we think of as classic SW fonts were created here in the US or in the UK because if you look at the Italian posters and adds and the rest of the international ads they all use different fonts.

Now a days things are more uniform.

The specific font I was looking for was this one:





I'm pretty sure that Rugby font is still the closest.

Yea those are similar to the DRAH title ads in the Newspapers but FAFDM has the cutouts in the letters slanted DRAH does not. I think you'll almost have to create them to get them exact.
