Case Polaroid

Case Polaroid
Anyone have any idea how long the Polaroid film can remain stable?

I ended up with a Polaroid 210 camera this weekend – the camera in very good shape, not the point. In its Carrying Case were three unopened boxes of the type 108 (!) Polaroid film, with expiration dates in the 1970s. Everything is still in the foil on the inside, since they have not popped everything open to check to see if the chemicals have hardened in the inside the package. Now, the camera and the box sat in a dark basement dry during the last who knows how many years, but I'm not waiting for results – assuming you can get – to be normal when I try to shoot these things in a couple of days. Anyone have any idea whether or not the chemistry and all that you have possibility of being viable after almost four decades, however? I'll give it a shot, in any case, but I'm just curious.

Maturity in years 1970? I'm guessing the bag (containing the chemical) could have dried completely. The only way to see if it will work is to take a photo.
