Before the big show tonight, I thought I’d point out something that I have learned. There is talk of a dating code that showed the film was manufactured in 1947, but I wonder what film code they were looking at. It seems that the code for 35 mm movie film is different than that for 35 mm slide film.
They have yet to release the code, which is, of course, in keeping with most of their silence on anything related to the Not Roswell Slides. I know that the code doesn’t appear on every frame so they were very lucky that the one slide they took out of the sleeve had a code on it. I just wonder what that code is… and figure that it will be revealed tonight. I will note that if the code is the same as that on movie film, then the first flaw has appeared. If it is the code seen on slide film, it will not provide a better clue as to the manufacture because those codes were recycled more frequently than that used on movie film.
We have seen the argument that rejected 1927 and 1967 because of the printed cardboard sleeve. But if we have a code from 35 mm slide film, the code might not limit it to 1947. The date of manufacture might be more of an open question.
So, tonight, if they reveal the codes, we might have a partial answer. For those interested, Google Kodak and you’ll find enough information to verify this. You’ll be able to see what the experts have to say.

This should get you started on your own search. I can’t imagine that those with the Not Roswell Slides will have failed to take this elementary step but we’ll find out later today.
