    Wow thats a new one on this southern yank.
    Regular "Reala" has been available again in 120 here in the states just recently…
    I hope thats a good sign.

    This film turns up on ebay from time to time from a seller who insists it's completely different to regular Reala. It's always so expensive that it's not worth finding out.

    This film was oirginally intended for the Liverpool, England, market where the word "ace" denotes superb, the very best or fabulous as in the "Fab Four" for those of us old enough to remember four Scouse "mop heads" who apparently were more popular than Jesus in the U.S. until one of them said so :D

    That site also states that Reala Ace in type 135 is no longer produced!
