Plus-X 5231

Previously only available in 400 and 1000ft rolls, the FPP, for an ultra limited time, offers Eastman Plus-X 5231 BW Motion Picture Film in convenient hand-rolled 35mm canisters of 24 exposures! This film stock was used for many, many years in Hollywood as the preferred BW film stock. Here's an NBC-TV link to one of the last motion pictures using Plus-X 5231!

NBC-TV News' Steven Louie wrote: "I recently sat down with director Paul Bunnell to discuss his latest film, “The Ghastly Love of Johnny X.” It’s a historic achievement partly because it’s likely to be the last feature ever shot on Eastman Kodak Plus-X 5231—an iconic film stock used in movies like Schindler’s List.

Plus-X is the stuff of legend for filmmakers like Bunnell, and its essence is built into the fabric of Johnny X. Not only was it shot and printed on black-and-white without a digital intermediate, but the production’s fate depended on gathering enough Plus-X from around the world to finish the movie, a feat Bunnell tackled with the help of his Kodak representative. So the journey to finishing Johnny X, spanning the better part of a decade, became interlaced with Bunnell’s struggle to find the last of the Plus-X—a second layer of drama embedded in the making of this film.  “I mean we don’t do movies like that anymore,” Bunnell says. “It’s the end of an era.”
