Kodachrome II 8 mm was basically a 16 mm strip run through a camera that exposes first the left hand half, and then the right half. The processing was the same as Kodachrome II 16 mm, and was very complex and expensive. As far as I can tell from the Kennedy stuff, there were only a handful of Kodak plants around the country that could do it. And there weren't ANY in the Pacific Northwest. Dallas happened to have a Kodak processing plant. But if Kennedy, Oswald and Zapruder had been in Seattle, the film would have had to been sent to Palo Alto.
