In the George Wallace image, is it the white type in the center that you want ID'd?

Yes, that's the title sequence.

I'd say that was at least close to Egyptienne Condensed Medium.

thanks for the help, i think i've found a very close match from an old wood type catalogue actually now, anyone know the Gish Jen typeface?

thanks, but the gish jen face is much boxier, check out the geometry of the capital 's'
anyone any ideas?

I spent some time looking for this when you first posted it, but the closest I have been able to find is E+F Diamante (Medium or Bold). The basic shapes, including the S, are about right, but the strokes through the stems would need to be added.
