I'n my opinion this must have a dark RED or ND filter, as a blue filter 
would lighten the blue sky (I'm talking about B&W).

I remember I had spoken about that film 24 years ago when I worked in a 
motion picture lab in Switzerland. The color analyst had said that the main 
part of the procedure called "nuit americaine" was done in the lab during 
color analysis (when making the print).
