What font is used in the intertitles of Hitchcock's Champagne?

What font did Alfred Hitchcock use for the intertitles in his 1928 silent comedy Champagne? Sample here. Identifont and WhatTheFont have both failed me. I'm looking for a free replica or close match.

That's a slight variation of a pretty standard intertitle font. David Berlow's Meyer Two is meant to be a replica of similar fonts cut for Louis B. Mayer in the same era. I think that Meyer Two is closer to those intertitles than Silentina.

Close enough for my needs, Sidhedevil. Thank you.
