I mean widely known movies that were shot only with fuji films..

the only one I can think of is Truman show (unless they shot portions on Kodak)...

So can you tell me all famous films that you can think of that were shot only on Fuji stock?

Well, even a film almost entirely shot on Fuji stocks sometimes used Kodak slow-speed stock for efx work, especially in the days of optical printing.

Some Fuji features:
"Star Trek 2", "Das Boot", "Room with a View", "Legend", "Mosquito Coast", "Jefferson in Paris", "Cyrano", "Alien Nation", "My Left Foot", "Mr. & Mrs. Bridge", "Lost in Yonkers", "The Wedding Planner", "Snatch", "Swordfish", "3000 Miles to Graceland", "North Country", "Three Burials of Meliquiades Estrada", "Assassination of Richard Nixon", "Before Sunset", "I Love Huckabees", "Garden State", "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind", "Punch Drunk Love", "The White Countess", "Wings of a Dove"

Others:
"A Walk to Remember", "Made", "Fallen Angels", "Kissing Jessica Stein", "Twin Falls Idaho", "Northfork", "Serendipity", "Human Nature", "Internal Affairs", "Where the Heart Is", "Slaves of New York", "Mr. Destiny", "Ballad of Sad Cafe", "Mississippi Masala", "Picture Bride", "American Me", "Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me", "Rich in Love", "Not Without My Daughter", "Hedwig and the Angry Inch", "Love's Labour's Lost", "Mysterious Skin", "A Dirty Shame", "Nutty Professor II", "Spider", "Passion of Mind", "The Bone Collector"

There are many films that have mixed Fuji and Kodak. One good example is "Dolores Claiborne", which shot the present of Kodak and the past on Fuji, as did "Somewhere in Time".

Actually, I don't think "The Truman Show" was shot on Fuji.

Many of Spielberg's recent films were shot using a mix of Fuji and Kodak. "Munich", "War of the Worlds", and "Minority Report" all mixed Fuji with older Kodak emulsions. The feature that Kaminski directed, "Lost Souls", also was shot on Fuji stock. There's an article in the newest issue of American Cinematographer discussing "Munich" and the reasons for using particular stocks, should be of interest to you.

Here's a simple search at IMDB... sorry can't sort out the camera films from the prints:

http://www.imdb.com/...hnical?for=fuji

This one film called Twin Falls Idaho was shot on Fuji 35mm. Who was the cinematographer on that again? :D Said cinematographer also was nominated for best cinematography at the Independent Spirit Awards so the stock can't be that bad!
