Man of La Mancha is a 1972 film adaptation of Dale Wasserman’s Broadway musical based on Don Quixote. Produced and directed by Arthur Hiller, the film stars Peter O’Toole and Sophia Loren.

For this Hungarian poster from 1973, István Bakos shows Don Quixote’s head floating over the iconic windmills. Above the illustration, the typography is set in two typefaces that were both designed by Bob Newman for Letraset: Manuscript Capitals (1972) and Pump Bold (1970) – with Dulcinea’s face tucked between the names. The contoured caps are used with both forms of A and partly overlap; the ultrageometric sans is used with barely any word spacing.
