You betcha you can! And you will probably get quite a bit, as
it is 1) black and white, and mosly pretty dark, and 2) usually has
the emulsion on both sides. The easiest way to do it is get some
fixing bath -- maybe from your local photo lab -- stick the film in
a few sheets at a time and leave until they just look like clear
Just to add a bit to Margarets note, plain fix bath won't work, as
that is used to remove the unexposed silver halides during
development. By the time you get old film it's already done it's
job, and been recovered, by someone else. What you need is a
"bleach-fix" bath. This will convert the black silver particles in
the emulsion to a form which is soluble, and then dissolve it.
You can buy bleach-fix from a good photo supply shop (not so many of
those around these days). You can get formulas in any number of
photo books. Look for "bleach", "reducer" or "Farmers reducer".
