Film was shot on a Kodak K100 camera in 1960's, is there any possible way to determine with confidence where the camera operator stopped and restarted the filming?

If yes, what should I be looking for?

Could edits/splices be mistaken for stops and starts?

Yes, specifically Bill Munns' claim that he found 5 start/stops.

Stops and Starts may have one frame with incorect exposure, depending on how well the camera was wound. Cement spices will leave a line.at the edge of the frame. if you are looking at a copy. Tape splices might be hard to see. If the film was edited, it might have been down in a and B rolls in which case the edit will just look like a jump.

If you are looking at the orginal of course, splices will be quite easy to spot.

Not worth a lot of effort, the costume looks very fake to me.
