The 33 minutes of footage show Armstrong recording for his 1959 album “Satchmo Plays King Oliver,” but the 16mm film has languished in storage or in private possession since the record’s producer had it created. The Louis Armstrong House Museum, where Armstrong lived in Queens, N.Y., announced the acquisition on Wednesday.
