The Hunt for Red October: Simple Desktop Backgrounds

Thanks to the IMDb, we now know that THFRO horribly botched the Russian / Cyrillic in their opening titles. I don’t know how that happened, and why it has not been corrected in subsequent DVD / Blu-Ray releases. Anyway, I present to you the ballistic missile submarine Red October a couple of simple desktop backgrounds, of the English title, and the correct Russian.

I was surprised to note that the text for “Red October” is set in different weights for the English vs. Cyrillic. Seems like extra trouble to me. Couldn’t ID the font at WhatTheFont, might have been hand-drawn.
