I'm aware that this is not really what you were aiming for, but my first thought is that when is film was digitalized, the wrong frames/s setting was used.
I remember that the same thing happend to OSensei's Asahi News film, and that the correct setting for that film was 18frames/s.

I had the same thought. I would love to see these old films at the correct speeds. But aside from that it is really cool to see a young Heiny sensei in training.
