    Agfa Supreme B&W Film

    I went to an antiques show today and bought an old Perfex Fifty Five 35mm camera that dates back to the early-to-mid 1940s'. Inside was a roll of Agfa Supreme B&W film that had been exposed. I'd like to process the film and see what images may still be on it. Anybody know anything about this film? Any idea as to processing times or developers? I leaning toward using Rodinal and Xtol which is what I have in my darkroom. Any and all suggestions appreciated.

    Supreme Pan was a medium speed panchromatic film sold as
    motion picture negative stock and also for 35mm still
    cameras. It was their competition to Kodak SS Pan and Plus-X
    motion picture films.

    be careful, in the 1940 era 35mm still film was still occasionaly made on the highly flamable NITRATE base.

    I developed some Ultrapeed of a similar vintage.
    In this link to my blog you will find some development times in various developers on a leaflet I found in the can.
