I have a number of C41 films dating back from when I 
was yearbook photographer in high school... in the 
late 1960s.  None of them are showing any significant 
signs of deterioration.

I just got through scanning one of these on the 8000 
and they look very nice.  Strangely, I can't identify 
the film type at all -- there are no markings on it  
to help with that.  But it's 35 mm, and in terms of 
surface/emulsion quality, looks like new.  This film 
in particular is at least 35 years old.
