If it isn't an overall issue of serious dirt, or redoing the transfer isn't
a possibility for whatever reason, you can draw it out carefully
frame-by-frame in several ways. The simplest is to convert all your frames
into stills and do it with Adobe Photoshop (even though this is a
brute-force method, it offers the most perfect result), or you can use the
paint technique in AfterEffects which allows a certain amount of easy
repeat from frame to frame. Depends on how much time, money and labor you
want to put towards fixing the problem.
Generally, if redoing the transfer is a possibility, you should do that. If
it isn't, the only method that will produce high quality results is some
variant of frame-by-frame retouching.
