Here’s some “pinched” tuscan lettering I made for a redesigned title card for the next film in Judy Garland’s filmography, “The Harvey Girls,” where Garland plays a mail-order bride who overcomes saloon girls, snakes, arson, and amorous complications while transforming into a waitress with gumption in the Old West.

You might be surprised to hear that this is Angela Lansbury’s fourth film. She previously appeared in a film with Mickey Rooney and Elizabeth Taylor in “National Velvet.”

The film is notable for reuniting Ray Bolger and Judy Garland for the first time since “The Wizard of Oz,” in 1939, as well as for the introduction of “On the Atchison, Topeka, and the Santa Fe,” which won an Academy Award for Best Original Song written by Harry Warren and Johnny Mercer and performed by Garland. (Johnny Mercer wrote many famous songs including “Moon River” with Henry Mancini.)
