Film is Making a Comeback

Marx Brothers in A Day at the Races. A 1937 Movie when the brothers were at their peak

Toronto. My thanks to Russ Forfar, one of our speakers this month. Russ emailed me a link to this Time Magazine article by Olivier Laurent on the state of film in today’s largely digital world.

It is a timely article as we recently reported that Kodak joined the new wave with a re-introduction of Ektachrome via its subsidiary Aliris.

The image of the Marx Brothers at left is a great illustration. The boys are at the races and are looking at a “photo finish” of one race in a darkroom of the era. Harpo (left) holds a big news camera (Graflex?), Groucho inspects a negative while Chico looks on too, holding a betting slip.
