Also, I had inquired:

Hi Bob,

I know the issue of an "A-wind" or "B-wind" seems trivial, but
there is a logic to my question. There is nothing to prevent
anyone from making a contact print off of another contact print;
I've seen coaches do that from old football film prints many
times in the past. The results are fine only the emmulsion comes
out on the same side as camera original as a result.

Since we know that "Santilli's original" is a print, then the
question remaining is if the Cameraman (assuming there is one)
is telling the truth about how he came into possession of it,

If Santilli's film print has the emmulsion on the same side as a
camera original, then that means it was made off of another dupe
and not camera original. In such a case, it would clearly
indicate either of the following:

A) That the cameraman did not have access to the camera original
and would, therefore, be lying as to his involvement in the
shooting of it. By extension, all the events and episodes that
he claims to have happened would be in serious doubt. He would
simply be a lab technician that stumbled onto some unusual film
that he made a copy of for himself.


B) That Santilli is simply lying about the existence of the
Cameraman to try and validate some unusal film, the origins of
which he hasn't a clue.
