Length: 36m
Format: 35mm, 1:1.33
Picture/Sound: b/w, silent
Notes: Three lines marked repeatedly on edge of film; German version.
The three lines are "gate signatures" of motion picture printers; holes cut in the gate that will print an identifying mark onto the duplicated element, so the quality control department can identify the actual printer used to make the element. Most helpful if you suddenly get a field illumination problem showing up in a few prints...
