No, 35mm is not a cropped format in this context.

Maybe you mean that 35mm film was itself a small format based off movie film, but this happened before either of us were buying cameras.

Canon and Nikon released non-full frame DSLRs onto their existing 35mm systems, and that is what we speak of APS-C being "cropped" relative to. They did this because of non-linearly higher cost of producing larger digital sensors, and it left those cameras inadequate relative to the lenses, viewfinder accessories, and other bodies that had been carefully designed and produced to provide a full-frame system.
