Help find a 1920s font

I am working on re-creating title cards for a 1920's Universal film and am looking for the below font. I am new to this and would be grateful for any help.

Many thanks!

Ephemera specializes in distressed "movie" fonts:

But that begs the Postmodern question, are you re-creating a facsimile of the document in its present state, a cleaned-up restoration of the original, or a high-res 21st century renovation?

It really bugs me when I see a silent movie with the action is all scratchy and grainy and jumpy, but the intertitles are new, all sharp and clean and still.
