    The film reminded me of the similar Kodak film on film manufacture from 1958.
    I thought this lens making film to be from the 50's.

    Are there other other hints that Point to the 40's?

    -) the film starts with showing a Kodak Ektra

    The British Film Institute dates this film of 1950.

    We used an analog computer for a number of things even up to the '70s.

    the Ektra was a pre- and post-war camera, but the real indicator that it is a 50s film is that it shows a guy using a Kodak Chevron to take pictures -- the Chevron followed the Medalist and was first produced in 1953...

    So I mixed up the Ektra with a Chevron. Both are new to me, but I have to admit the Chevron fits much better to what I see on film.
    The British Film Institute is wrong. And I am finally right with my first impression of the film being from the 50's...


    Or will someone come up with a new proposal?

    Yes, the formation of Hawk-Eye Works was 1956:

    1956 - KODAK VERICHROME Pan Film was introduced, a black-and-white film that replaced the popular KODAK VERICHROME Film launched in 1931. ♦ Tennessee Eastman introduced VEREL Fiber for use in rugs, draperies and other household furnishings. ♦ Kodak formed the Apparatus and Optical Division, which included the Camera Works and the Hawk-Eye Works in Rochester.

    The Apparatus and Optical Division was installed in 1956. The Hawk Eye Works are 50 years or so older.

    Edit:
    The Kodak lens making department moved from their former location into the premises of the Kodak Hawk Eye Works in 1913.

    What about that purchase order for a 16mm lens in the first few mins. Could that help us date it to 50's+? I know 16mm was around before 1950's but 16mm sure took off then

    At the 0:35 mark, the lens serial number is RA006. 1952.
