Smile restoring damaged movies?

hello friends, would be cool if someone could provide information on how the studios restore movies in 4k from original negatives that have splits or damaged to it.

how do they restore the damaged or lost video when it is damaged such as in these two shots:

Well, not sure if this was how the above movie was done but...
In cases where the original print/negative is damaged, a secondary print is used to reference the damage. Each frame of both prints are compared,using the best print as the master, then in a form of "photoshop" on a computer the damage is corrected on the digital reproduction, color corrected, and the "empty" spots filled in using the secondary print as a guide, but of course colors are corrected using the master. Each frame is painstakingly done until the movie is complete. Obviously it takes a crew of computer technicians, each working on a section of the film, so that it gets done faster. Universal has a great You Tube video of how 1931's Dracula was redone to demonstrate what I'm talking about.

A search of You Tube also came up with this tidbit on how Criterion restores films.
