Hi,

A friend has found a sealed,unopened (band still around film can) of nitrate film 1000ft 35mm 'Eastman' POSITIVE Nitrate Motion Picture Film Stock. Is this a rare find?

Thanks

If the can is sealed, the film may start to decompose and ignite spontaneously. You cannot extinguish a nitrate fire, it will continue to burn even under water. Nitrate film was last manufactured in the early 1950s so it will be fogged, shrunk and brittle. Will make a spectacular bonfire on NewYear's eve (stand well clear).
