I believe this film is 1hr 8mins long. Does anyone know what this equates to in feet of film? I expect there is a mathematical equation to work it out but I am unaware.

Well I guess that's an answer, but unfortunately you didn't mention how you arrived at it.

Hi,

I've got the Blackhawk print of this and it came on 4x400ft spools but if memory serves me right - the 4th spool isn't full.

Please note that Maurice's footage calculation is based on 25 fps, not 24.

Most "modern" 16mm sound projectors tend to run at 25 fps.
