Default Mystery Autographs - Help Needed for 15

Hello All,
While spring cleaning autographs, I've bumped back into my unknown pile. I like to go through these once or twice a year and see if I can't get a few figured out, and hoped to get some help from the autograph eyes here. There are fifteen autographs in the scans below, most of them are going to be entertainment related though a couple of the 3 x 5 index could be sports. The very first one, the blue album page, has really been nagging at me for a couple years now. It came out of an autograph album that was mostly from 1944, and a vast majority of the names in the album were very famous, though there were a few minor stars I was able to ID over 250 of the other ones. This one has left me perplexed. The small bookplate in the last scan I've had for over five years and still can't (and may never) be able to ID it unless someone recognizes it. Any and all help is appreciated, even if you don't recognize a signature if you think you can make out some of it, I'll take any hints as it may help lead me to the right answer, and may you'll see a different letter formation than I keep seeing. Thanks for taking the time to look, I'll update the post if any are identified.

UPDATE: One identified so far
Willie Nelson (third scan, bottom right)
Debra Winger (third scan, top right)
Annabeth Gish (second scan, bottom left)

I have started to think about this type of thing more and more as I slowly get closer and closer to complete organization. I mostly sort things out play name, but even so, sometimes a signature looks nothing like who you might think it is. I know who they are, but once I am no longer in the picture, then what? I started marking the more difficult to read signatures with IDs so that if anyone (my family for example) needed to get rid of them, they would have help in the ID process. I remember doing this as a kid when I would get signatures at games during batting practice, when I knew very little, and more recently I also made sure I noted who signed what when I would attend a minor league game, although it seems most players are signing with their number now. Otherwise, most are just unrecognizable scribbles.

It is sad that so many autographs have been eagerly and faithfully obtained over the years, only to sit unidentified later on as they change hands.

PS- I looked over the scans and am afraid I have to admit I am worthless on your unknowns, sorry.

Its a 1944 Who's Who at MGM. Might be able to match some initials to a name and then see about googling an auto for them...just a thought...

Hey, I figured one out, it finally just clicked what it looked like. It only took me five years to get this one . Third scan, top right is Debra Winger.

Not 100%, but the 5th one looks a lot like Annabeth Gish.

I think you are definitely right on that one, looks like a match. Thanks for taking the time to ID that one for Annabeth Gish.
