I've seen the images of 35mm film made into a lampshade, and some of the prints destroyed were quite desirable if you were a 35mm collector. The worst case I came across was a man on Preloved who contacted me over two films I was trying to sell. He didn't seem to know a lot, and was asking questions about the size of reels rather than the films, so I described the films to him, and he replied that he wasn't interested in the films, only the reels. The films would be binned and the empty reel turned into a wall clock, which he then sells. He also boasted about taking the workings out of projectors and turning them into table lamps. I looked at his listings, and he was destroying Specto 9.5mm projectors. I didn't sell him any films, even if I no longer want them, I hope they would go to a good home. I don't understand the mentality of people who see nothing wrong in destroying an item 60 years or more old.
