One question though: When did the 'super-8' come into being?
Eastman Kodak released the Super 8 film system in 1965.

I remember it had a magnetic sound track.
Yes, a form with a magnetic sound track was introduced in 1973.

Versions with an optical sound track were used for special purposes (e.g., in-flight movies).

Thanks for writing.

Best regards,
