A narrow all-caps dot matrix typeface, with 3 dots for verticals and 2 dots for horizontals, at a height of 12 dots. Origin unclear. Shown in a 1974 Formatt catalog as Hollywood Lights. Dan X. Solo’s Special-effects and Topical Alphabets (Dover Books, 1978) shows Hollywood Lights next to a version where the dots are replaced with stars, named Hollywood Stars. Also shown in the 1992 Solotype catalog.
Digitized by Solotype in 1999, but with various differences, including regularized bar lengths on ‘E’ and ‘F’, a heavier ‘Q’ tail, lighter vertical strokes on the ‘5’, and a misplaced extra dot on the bottom of the ‘9’.
