I've been on a large format kick lately and here I am watching Ben Hur, right now. And the thought occured...

...how were large format films like this edited before the days of digital? Were 35mm reduction work-prints made for editing and then conformed to the original 65mm negative? I've never seen editing tables that appeared large enough to fit a 65mm work print.

Thanks.

Prints are on 70mm stock in any case, 65mm is for origination alone.
In the eastern bloc 70mm film was used for the shoot as well as for distribution.

Yes, reduction dailies, from 1991 on also from the C. O. S. H. A. R. P

You have wide film synchronizers and there were 70mm editing machines. Westrex with an eight-face prism, Steenbeck (pronunciation as with Schnee), KEM.
