Here’s a new title card I’ve designed, illustrated, and lettered for the next film in my Judy Garland movie title series!

I didn’t love the Star Wars type from the trailer or the tuscan lettering from the main titles so I decided to reimagine the title card as a super-fancy chromatic wood type poster hanging outside of The Palace Theatre in 1919.

In “For Me and My Gal,” a group of Vaudevillians encounter romantic challenges and World War I in their hopes of making it big at The Palace Theatre in New York City. It’s Gene Kelly’s very first film and Judy’s first role playing an adult closer to her actual age. She’s not a little kid anymore! This is an underappreciated gem of a musical!
