Todd Ruel Posted May 3 Share Posted May 3 Film transfer experts and film print collectors: I just bought off of eBay a 1924 industrial film about General Motors constructing their proving grounds in Milford Michigan. Black and white. Silent (of course). I have not yet received the film print in the mail. From the eBay vendor's screen grabs, the print appears tinted yellow. I know that film tinting was done for some major Hollywood productions back in those days. (The silent 1925 version of Ben Hur comes to mind.) But I didn't think industrial films would be tinted. Question: has the film print simply faded to yellow? (I have very little experience with how very old movie film ages.) Or do you think it might actually be tinted?
