If you miss the 1970's Tri-X look, buy a 400 foot roll of Eastman XX 5222 cine film and roll your own. It is about a 250 speed film, and has none of the fine grained improvements you seem to dislike in the newer Tri-X emulsions. Use Beutler's or Stoeckler's developer and you will have all the sharp, grainy and punchy look you want.

If you want something that looks a bit like the old Tri-X, try Foma 200 and 400.
Yeah, especially Foma 400. You need to rate at around 200 to 250 to get a decent image with it. Just like the "old" Tri-X before they raised the speed to 400 many, many years ago. Don't get me wrong. I kind of like Foma 400. It is not a replacement for Tri-X.
