Pardon my ignorance but as I research the 3:2 pulldown issue
with electronic editing, for my own writing

I have found a book 
Lost illusions: American cinema in the shadow of Watergate and Vietnam, 1970 ... By David A. Cook
that tells of a Kodak innovation in 1982. The text essentially says

Around the same time, Kodak created a way to record an eight digit SMPTE timecode for each film frame, with a transparent magnetic coating on its film stock. 

What was this product? and was it realised?

Thanks TIG'ers
