The other one is similar to Playbill,

IL SORRISO is a shortened version of the famous "wanted poster" font French Clarendon, created by William H. Page in 1865.

An authentic digital version by Wooden Type Fonts as Clarendon Heavy
IL SORRISO would seem to be a photolettering era version that has not been digitized. Clarendon Heavy can be modified to look almost identical
