Thanks Jean-Louis,
I will try to track down a copy of this book. I did find this diagram on kodaks 
site that briefly mentions subbing but does not go into any details.

            Does anyone know what film manufacturers use as their subbing layer 
on film stock so that the emulsion adheres to the base?

       I briefly scanned my copy of "Making Kodak Film" by Robert L. Shanebrook 
(highly recommended, I might add) and I don't see any particular preparation to 
the increase adhesiveness. It says that after the gelatin is applied, it is 
immediately cooled, so this may be the trick to adhesion.
