Various display text from a trailer of “Bob le flambeur”. Some condensed sans, some modern serif. (To clarify: I’m looking for suggestions to any similar fonts).

All handlettered, as was common practice in the 1950s.

Yes, I assumed they were hand lettered, but I’m curious to know if there are any fonts that are closely similar, especially to the first sans serif.

Radiant Condensed or Roxy are similar, but you'd have to modify the S and the Q to match this sample.

Some similarity to the the first image, i.e. the lettering _SYMPATHIQUE_, Atto Sans S is close.
