    Katherine Hepburn negatives - which film?

    I won 25 negatives of Katherine Hepburn at an auction and I was wondering what film they were shot on. They are 8x10 negatives, here is a picture of the notch and one of the contact prints I made yesterday. I'm guessing it is Ektapan 4162

    Looks like Kodak Commercial film. Search for sheet film notch codes, lots of information out there

    As a matter of curiosity, do you know who the photographer was? What movie(s) the photos were for? Who's the actor with her in the photo that you included?

    Photographer was Gastavo Paraas. I couldn't find much on him except that he was based in NY. Not sure what movies they were or the other actors. I'll have a video up on YouTube in two weeks if you care to see the rest of the pictures.
