The films that faded fast were in the 40s. By the 50s, they had started to fix that problem. (Ektachromes too). In fact, in the 50s, one way to get faster film (the Denver Post pioneered this) they used to process slide film in negative chemistry. They got real contrasty pictures, but for letterpress presses, it was acceptable. - -- Eric Welch St. Joseph, MO http://www.ponyexpress.net/~ewelch The world's full of apathy, and I don't care.
