i found some rolls of undeveloped 35 film. one was double x b/w neg and
the others were 5254 color neg. There is a date of march 1972 on the can.
Is there any hope that this would be usable?

You'll probably get something on the B/W-- the lab might be able to adjust
their processing a bit to push or pull it for best results. Lots of fog
The 5254 used the original ECN processing chemistry- I think-- which is no
longer available. It would be pretty hopeless anyway for a color film that
Is this unused film?
