Cleanup ideas[edit]

The Agfacolor article could benefit from a deeper treatment. I have some hardcopy references, but I don't have much experience with it or much special knowledge, so it would be nice for people with more to contribute ideas about cleaning up the article:

  • Can someone who reads German and English bring over the information from the German Wiki article?
  • The trivia section needs to be integrated in the larger article.
  • Agfacolor had a unique "look", intentionally (the article already alludes to this 'touch' to a certain extent). That there was a race for the "best" color film glosses that there were substantially different opinions as to what film was best -- and for what situations it was best.
  • The article emphasizes movie stock, but more people will know it, and see it today, as still film.
  • The heavy comparison to Kodachrome is a little POV, especially since most readers now will never have used Kodachrome, either. Or especially, know much about it. There were lots of color films, and it may not be appropriate to say Agfacolor was specifically a response to Kodachrome.
  • The stories about "Women are Better Diplomats" are very interesting, but mostly belong in a separate article.
  • More attention needs to be given to the film's later incarnations, and to their final demise. It was a good film, why was it ultimately put out of production?
