Default 1940's Mystery Autographs - Help Needed - 13 Total - Likely Entertainment

Hi All,
I recently purchased a collection of about 200 autographs housed within three small books. I have identified almost all of them but there are thirteen I am stumped on. Some seem fairly simple but I can't seem to get them, and hoping someone here will recognize them. I don't want to neglect any because there are quite a few big names in the collection (Frank Sinatra, Judy Garland, Lou Costello, Errol Flynn), and I missed a Charlie Chaplin on my first look through that was in there. There are some spouses of movie stars as well so that could be the case with some of these. Any help is much appreciated, and as usual if anyone ever needs help with autographs themselves they can PM me any time. I'll update the thread if/when some are identified.

1) ?
2) ?
3) ?
4) ?
5) ?
6) Ken Niles (thanks Michael)
7) ?
8) Phil Baker (probably, thanks Steve)
9) ?
10) I think this one is Phyllis Brooks
11) ?
12) Edmond O'Brien (Thanks Kevin)
13) ?

#8 might be Phil Baker. He was a comedian/actor/songwriter in the 1940s.

Update on two of these. Anyone else recognize any of the other 11 autographs before I put them away to stump me at a future date again?

#6 is probably actor and radio announcer Ken Niles (1906-1988)

I read #3 as Madeline Brisebois, but cannot find anyone of that name of any fame.

Thanks guys. Kevin I actually had Edmond O'Brien down on my original list for who that might be, and kind of forgot about it. Am happy you confirmed it as I might not have remembered. Michael, thanks for the Niles, and I agree I also read the other one as Madeleine Brisebois but didn't have any luck finding anyone in the entertainment business circa the 1940's. I suppose it could just be a friend or someone else who signed a page.

The fourth one in the list is really driving me nuts. I keep coming back to the first name either being Niles or Miles. The only thing close I can find to matching what the last name looks like is Niles Marsh. Unfortunately, I cannot find any examples of his (her) signature anywhere to compare. Anyone else seeing Niles or Miles as the first name, and perhaps that will spark an idea on the last name?
