Found this info on Typographica:

"Mobley is based on ten letters found on the cover of a 1960s Blue Note jazz album. The ten source letters were designed for film setting by Wayne Stettler as part of a single typeface published by VGC under the name Neil Bold. Mobley Sans and its condensed and serifed counterparts constitute a brand new design molded around those source letters."

Too bad - Mobley Sans is missing some of the quirks of the original Neil Bold, such as the little hook where the bowl of the P joins the stem. And the cap E is completely different.

The other font is an old film font called Alpha Midnight. No idea if there is a digital version.
