Slightly different, but I just did a bunch of digital printing for  
someone recently.  I also scanned their film.  Fortunately, I have a  
really nice Epson scanner, but I did notice that on every single piece  
of 35mm film, there were scratches all down the front (as though  
someone ran a gravel-filled squeegee down the front of each strip).   
My scanner and I managed to eliminate those scratches, but I did ask  
this person where they had their color film processed.  It was  
Walmart.  I suggested they might want to go someplace else.
