This might be (neo-)Matterhorn 2 by Headliners, or a precursor thereof. See this style overview from a 1977 catalog — don’t let the cropped ‘t’ bar confuse you, the full glyph is shown at the bottom, in grey.
In addition to what I wrote in my comment to your other contribution: Typeface IDs from this era are often tricky. Makers of film type happily cloned and “built upon” the products of others, without crediting the source. Many faces contained a great number of alternates which are not always depicted in showings. Generally, there is relatively little documentation about the creations made for this short-lived technology.
Florian, thank you very much for this background information. I haven’t been here in a few weeks, so it was nice to log in and see what you had to say on this typeface. Your remarks are interesting about how makers would clone and modify others’ work. I really enjoy learning about how this all works, so again, thank you and I’m getting ready to see your other comment!
