With the re-release of Clash Of The Titans, we were discussing at work classic fantasy films. Someone mentioned a film from 1981, Dragonslayer.... Now here is the cover for that film:



Now, does anyone recognise that font?!?! That film was released in 1981, 2 years before Dragon's Lair. Who copied who?!?
