Photo Flood lights - Photography

A friend of mine gave me a bunch of Photo Flood light bulbs as well as two "Flood Lights". These she says were her father's lights from about 60 or so years ago. They look just like the "Clamp Lights" you can buy at Home Depot, just with a dome made a bit thicker. If this is the case, can I use Photo Flood bulbs in those claim lights you buy at Home Depot? If I am not clear, I am refering to the silver reflector dome lights....

    You can use standard incandescent lighting of 500W but you need to either
    use tungsten film or a color correction filter to correct the
    yellow/orangeish tint you will get on standard outdoor color film. If you
    are shooting B/W you need not worry. The blue lights do eliminate the need
    for tungsten film or a color correction filter since they will be about
    2800K, a little less than the 3200K of daylight. If you are going to use
    the film for both indoor and outdoor I would go with the filter or the blue
    light so you will have more flexibility, and it is less expensive (tungsten
    slide film just cost me over $12usd for 36 exposures).

    If the bulbs have a definite deep blue appearance, when looking at the unlit bulb, they
    *might* be daylight balanced ... otherwise they are either 3200 K or 3400 K
