Well, i found "Bellerose" on Dafont.

Its more accurate than the twentieth-century-poster-mt, only one problem..
its a "Light" version, and not the bold..

Lets Fix that..,  just give it a 4mm outline and i think i can adjust it from there to fit exactly  ;D

Faster than me who was still just busy looking for the right font  ;)
Anyway just for the record:
It's an Art Deco font called Capone Medium.
http://www.linotype.com/305210/CaponeMedium-font.html
Signage of many historic landmarks in Hollywood are in this style.
Deco fonts were used in early movie posters almost exclusively in the golden era of Hollywood, during the golden age of travel, by Walt Disney for signage in Disneyland, etc.. (quoted from MaryEllen Schrock).
Perfect choice for let's say an old school californian licence plate for instance  ::)...

I only have the light version (which is free).
...but you did a great job, so no need for the real font!

No idea, looks like some kind of Archie font but hugely italic :D :D :D

As I see you have a hawk-eye for the fonts here, maybe you can tell me which is this one:


You can also guess what I'm vectorizing right now ;)

Help me!!!, I see vectors everywhere!!!
