Gahd Bless Kodachrome!

The colour shot of a young[ish] John Huston is vibrant and vital.

And I'm pretty sure that it's not Ektrachrome or [shudder] print film. . . .

swac said...

Vanwall said...

Out of two dozen portraits, nearly half feature at least one person smoking. What a different time it was.

Polaroid and Lady Gaga now partners. She was at CES in Vegas on Thursday promoting the product: "I am so proud to announce my new partnership with Polaroid as the creative director and inventor of specialty projects. The Haus of Gaga has been developing prototypes in the vein of fashion/technology/photography innovation--blending the iconic history of Polaroid and instant film with the digital era--and we are excited to collaborate on these ventures with the Polaroid brand. Lifestyle, music, art, fashion: I am so excited to extend myself behind the scenes as a designer, and to as my father puts it--finally, have a real job."

Don't know Mike Todd but what a superb picture!

Mike Todd was a producer once married to Liz Taylor.
Looking forward to The Edwin H. Land Story, starring Chris Noth.
