Can you extract higher image quality from 35mm?

Only if you're shooting low speed B&W.

This depends on your sensor.  Theoretically, in ideal conditions, Fuji Velvia colour slide film can give you about 22 Mpixels, based on it's 160 lines per mm rating.  (Check Fuji data sheet for confirmation)

Which lags behind an inexpensive 24MP Nikon 3200 which has an infinite supply of digital "film" and instant results.
