I know nothing specifically about a Mitchell, but I know you can
modify a double-claw 16mm camera (an old Filmo for example) by
removing the second claw and it will work fine. You'd have to take the
camera apart, I mean you couldn't just grind down the claw with it
sticking up in the gate. I made a tutorial on how to convert a double
perf Filmo to single perf.
