The actual 'image' area of the film measures 36mm x 24mm There were three image sizes for 35mm cameras: 24 x 36 "double frame," which is the most popular size and the only size sold today 24 x 24 "square," which was introduced after World War II as a means of giving the photographer more pictures on a roll 18 x 24 "single frame," which is the same size as a 35mm movie camera frame. This is also called "half frame." Half-frame cameras are very collectible. There is also a 24 x 60 (or thereabouts) panoramic format--long, skinny pictures.

Which part of 35mm film measures 35mm?

With respect to "still" photography (i.e. not movies) the answer is no part.I derives the moniker from the fact that roll film first used in what we know of as the 35mm format was intended for movies, which as far as I know, produced an image where one side was 35mm in length.
