This thread has prompted me to ask a question that entered my head after I had seen the credits on a movie film that was on TV many years after being made. Sorry I forget what film it was but it certainly was post World War Two.

It said the film had been digitally re-mastered. I wonder what this meant and why was it necessary given that film has a very long life.

Was this the exception rather than the rule i.e. the film in question had simply been physically damaged rather than suffering an inevitable form of age deterioration?

Thanks
