THE HOLLYWOOD HAT

THERE ARE STILL SOME MYSTERIES
 
HIDDEN IN

 
THE HOLLYWOOD HAT


There are 389 signatures on The Hollywood Hat.  I've been able to identify 376 of them.  For the other thirteen, some professional or inspired help would be much appreciated.

First off, there are ten signatures I can't fully decipher.  If any reader of this article recognizes any of the signatures or is adept at unravelling the vowels and consonants, please e-speak up.


Undeciphered 1



Undeciphered 2 & 3



Undeciphered 4




Undeciphered 5



Undeciphered 6




Undeciphered 7




Undeciphered 8
(Lupino is not part of the signature)




Undeciphered 9
(might possibly be two signatures)





Undeciphered 10


Then there are three autographs that have faded beyond what I'm able to read.  Without knowing any of the technical specifics, I hear there are ways of raising names from ghostly writing.


Faded 1



Faded 2




Faded 3


And lastly, there are a few individuals whose signatures are readable, but about whom I can't locate any information:

J. Lee Morris
Warwick
MC O'Neill
