Poignant Reminder of Kodachrome's Earliest Days

With the announcement recently that the "last" roll of Kodachrome was exposed by photographer, Steve McCurry (he shot the 36 exposure roll on the streets of New York), I reminisced a bit about Kodachrome and how it was use to record images of my past--mostly on 8mm and Super 8 movie film. Therefore, there's something very poignant about this video. It shows the early origins of the film, the beginning really. Here's a 1922 Kodak Kodachrome Film Test. It's very nice YouTube production. You just might get a little misty eyed.
