This is a film made by Kodak to advertise their new 16mm film stocks. The first advert is for Kodachrome. Manufactured from 1935-2009, Kodachrome was the first successfully mass-marketed colour film beating out its predecessors such as Dufaycolor and Kodacolor. The film includes intertitles which explain the advantages of the new colour stock, and the titles are intercut with brief picturesque and colourful scenes. The second advert is for its duplicate positive black and white processing.
