I. Film Elements

Mostly 16 mm film, unless otherwise indicated as either 35 mm film, 1/4-inch magnetic audio tape, or LP vinyl recordings. The length of the film reels is given in most cases. Some cans contain several film elements of unknown length or the length of element may be approximated by size of can.
