how to open stuck hood

Hello, the new owner of 1969 500. The Hood appears to be stuck and I am unable to get it open. The release cable seems to be pulling the latch but the hood will not raise. Does anyone know how I can get it to open?

Is it stuck on the latch or just not popping up a little? Many of us have to reach in and pull the handle while simultaneously lifting the drivers side of the hood. The little spring rubber that is supposed to do it wears out quickly.
