Does anyone know the exact stock used for Fassbinder's "World on a wire" (shot by Michael Ballhaus)? I seem to remember that I've read it's Ektachrome - but which one?

Surely not 7241 or 7242 (antecessor to the VNF stocks)... could be 7252 (EI 25... unlikely?) or Ektachrome 160 introduced in 1971... anyone happens to know for sure?

Thanks,
Marc

Back then, if it was Ektachrome, it was most likely ECO-- Ektachrome Commercial 7255 or 7252, not sure which was when. One replaced the other.

ECO was a low-contrast color reversal original, intended for making release prints. Much used, mostly 16mm.

Wasn't that Fassbinder film a mish-mash of all sorts of footage?
