Digital ICE should solve this problem for you.

FWIW I tried to remove a fingerprint from a film strip yesterday only to
find that it's embedded in the emulsion. The operator at the lab must have
put their fingerprint on the film while the emulsion was wet. :( In their
defense, it was right on the end of the film where an image *shouldn't*
have been, but the camera had squeezed another image onto the end of the
strip. Hopefully I'll be able to remove the fingerprint with some careful
use of the cloning tool.
