It was just shot in ordinary Kodak 16mm color negative, 7254 (100 ASA, tungsten), the only Kodak color negative stock at the time. In the U.S. in the early 1970's, we were still mostly using color reversal in 16mm (mainly 25 ASA ECO) but in Europe, color negative had begun to take over in 16mm.

I'm not sure it matters which modern color negative stock you use, but something in the 250 to 500 ASA range would be similar to '54 stock of the early 1970's in terms of graininess. Maybe Fuji Eterna 250T would be a close match, but it really depends on what you are matching to. An old movie can be copied and transferred in so many ways. I'm sure that the blow-ups to 35mm released in the theaters in the 1970's look different than the new video transfer shown on DVD today, and on standard def video, you can't really judge the true grain and sharpness of the original anyway.
