Angry Hood Latch Stuck

I just got an '84 Cutlass Supreme, runs, etc., but I can't get under the hood. The cable may be bad, but it 'clicks' when you pull it out... then, nothing! The hood doesn't lift up that inch or so, SO; I can't get to the rest of the latch.
Is there any way to reach what I need to reach from under the car? If so, how?

Take out the grilles and you should be able to get closer.

Have someone bang on the hood while you pull the cable. Slam it shut again and then try again and again. Lubricate/replace worn parts as needed when it does finally open.
