I've watched the training film on handling nitrate film, produced
I believe by Kodak, and it was necessary, in order to burn nitrate
film of a certain condition, to hold a flame to it.    However, I
don't remember if flammability increases with deterioration of
the film over time (gas and bubbling vinegar state).
