    this should be interesting as Kodak dropped a lot of money with Lucky last year, or within the past 18 months..
    Perhaps that was just the film side of Luck, don't know for sure.

    Hmmmm.

    I'm a bit skeptical on a film called lucky. I saw too many post WWII films about locals calling out to GIs inquiring about their needs.

    Ah, hell maybe it's just me.

    Well, J & C sells Lucky B&W film, but I don't see any Lucky paper on their site. Still, they're probably the best bet -- try e-mailing them to see if they have plans to carry this product in the future.

    I e mailed J & C, at this point they have no plans to carry Lucky, but may reconsider depending on how future supplies work out. As far I can tell Lucky is not avilable in the US.
