I stumbled across a vintage film reel in 16mm black and white format titled "Tomorrow's Airplane Today: The Story of the Stratocruiser"
I believe it is from the 1940s. I would like to find out anything about the film itself- it's use, date of release, etc. All I know is what is in the film titles, that it was presented by Boeing, produced by Jerry Fairbanks, narrated by Wayne Whitman, music by Edward Paul, written by George Brandt, edited by Reg Brown.
I was surprised to find it is not on IMDb.
Also, the film seems to have deteriorated slightly. It is extremely difficult to load into a projector due to warping, which I have found online from a general search tends to indicate shrinkage. Does anyone have any experience in film transfers to digital? I know it can be done with the right equipment and without the use of a projector. I'm curious as to cost and any opinions anyone has on whether or not this would be worth doing.
This is a bit outside my expertise. I'm guessing it's probably expensive, and if the film is of little interest to the aviation community, is this even worth hanging onto in this condition?
