It was covered in a Dec. 1987 issue of "American Cinematographer" but it's not particularly full of technical details. Major item mention was lighting Michael Douglas' office with HMI's but gelling the windows with 85 to make the background light golden.

There was no mention of film stocks used. This was a period when Kodak had just introduced the first 250D (5297) stock, plus had two 500T stocks in use, 5294 and 5295.

5295 originally was meant for bluescreen use only; it was an early stock to use T-grain in some of its layers. DP's started using it for normal photography; it was slightly more contrasty and less grainy than 5294. When the first EXR 500T stock came out in 1989, 5296, it had T-grain in all its layers and replaced both 5294 & 5295.

I may have read elsewhere that Richardson use 250D 5297 for those office scenes but I can't remember.
