All film editing was done that way, back in those days when they used this stuff called "film." The original footage would be carefully labeled and set aside, while editing happened on the "workprint." In our case (my father did film editing) there was no robot to do the master edit, so they did it carefully by hand with special splicers. There were nice frame numbers printed along the edges to help in the location of the right footage.
Ah, the good old days...
