It's a TV syndication print. I've had it about 20 years,
and first noticed the vinegar effact maybe 15 years ago.
Within a couple more years, the film had warped and buckled
so bad it was unprojectable. Most films I've seen with
vinegar smell are TV prints. None were as bad as this one,
however. It bubbled the paint on the inside of the can.
