Film Daily wishes to know how many feet of film are marketed each year in the United States. Wilstach appears to be having some trouble obtaining figures, presumably because the question is misunderstood to be how many feet are used by the motion picture industry. While Wilstach intends to add the number of features, shorts, newsreels that are released together and then calculate the number by the reel, the people at Kodak Eastman don't appear to be too happy about the inquiry.
