The first time that picture was shown was on the Merv Griffin show back in 1979. It was discovered 3 years after it was taken. Gene Campbell, who was a professional photographer, was brought into the house in 1976 when the Warrens went in with their team. He set up an automatic camera on the 2nd floor landing that shot off infrared film, black and white, throughout the night. There are literally rolls of film with nothing on them. There’s only one picture of the little boy.
Photo of the Day: A commemorative tee from Dwayne’s Photo in Parsons, Kansas — the last lab in the world capable of processing Kodachrome film — where, today, the last roll of “the world’s first commercially successful color film” was developed, bringing an era to a close.
