Kodak created Kodachrome in 1935 and by the mid-1970's it was so culturally ingrained into society no one gave it a second thought when Paul Simon immortalized the film in song. These digital times have reduced the film, known for its vivid colors to a business loser. So much so that Kodak announced today that it will stop making it.
Like the typewriter (you remember that don't you?) the 35 mm film will soon be lost from the vocabulary of a generation who know nothing but digital photography. Momma won't even have have a chance to take your Kodachrome away.
