    Some of it. So far. For how much longer is an unknown.

    The film marketing function will have a new owner. Kodak (the "box printing company") will continue to manufacture the film. For how much longer is an unknown.

    Lots and lots. However, we can't expect more.

    I am probably the only one here who has met and talked to Perez one on one. He is a charming, convincing person! That said, I believe that his policies regarding color printers or nothing, and film is dead were not suitable for Kodak.

    OTOH, the global depression at the time he was doing this all didn't help things. OTOH, he missed seeing that there was no market trend for home printers and he missed the chance to have an internet picturing site like Facebook. So, this combination of policies led to the present Kodak problem.

    You might consider the fact that the billions going in to Kodak has all come in the form of contracts with Sony for Motion Picture products.

    Ah, Ron ... this requires three hands.

    And my understanding is that Sony weren't the only purchasers of the motion picture profuct.

    I think it's perfectly obvious that Elmer Fudd could have done the job equally well as Perez. I can imagine George Eastman writhing and ringing his hands in his grave.

    Mustafa would have that improbability drive and always keep the board members guessing.

    I know that, and that is what it will need to save Kodak.

    Advertising. Primetime TV (what there still is of it), and AM radio. Although I don't generally listen to much of it myself, I wonder what kind of film sales could generated on the Dash Limburger program, for instance. Or some network TV presentation. Do you realize the average 21 year old doesn't know what film is? My point is, film doesn't have to die like this.
