Transferring really old film...

I've got about 800 feet of circa 1920/30 35mm tint-base archive acetate
(which is really heavily vinegar syndrome).  The client wants to leave the
base tint in the colorimetry.  Historically, is this the thing to do with
respect to projected fidelity?  Or, is the base tint there to try to correct
the carbon arc to "black & white"?  The film also looks like it was shot at
about 18 fps.  How common was that in those days?

Also, I'll bet that those guys scrambling around in the Rockies didn't know
they were shooting High Def... ;-)
