Unless, as Samuel seems to be saying, deception was possibly involved.

Kodak have discontinued countless stocks over the years, without nefarious motives. Would they have done it to Kodachrome in its heyday? Probably not, but by 2010, sales of Kodachrome had dropped considerably, and there was only one lab left that could process it. Kodak had shifted its core business away from film, and Kodachrome was probably regarded as another non profitable product line that could be cut. Remember, they filed Chapter 11 just a year later. I think Kodachrome was just a victim of digital cameras, and corporate upheaval at Kodak.

And the "we are a printer ink company" mindset.

I'm looking forward to hearing how you go with it. In further developments, my old cinema friend a few doors up the street has come good with a 16mm projector. It's an old Siemens that was used by the education dept. But no lens! Knowing Jim, he will come up with a lens as well. It will take me a while to get this thing running again as I'm not very mechanically inclined. Next project is finding out if he really can get a 35mm projector or two that are up for grabs. What I need is someone in Australia who is a genius at getting old projectors working again.

Look forward to hearing view :)

It's grainy, but otherwise ideal for very wide ultra-16 as there's no latent markings. Grain may be tighter if pulling development.  Runs very smoothly and steadily through camera and projector.

I'm quite looking forward to shooting this as well, however, it will need to wait as I live in a part of the United States that only sees 64 days of sunlight out of the entire year, mostly in the Summer, and we're in Winter now. So I'll need to wait for the rare sunny day to go out there and capture some reversal goodness.
