Here's what another Kodak publication that applies strictly to black-and-white films says on the subject:

"Large, even-toned areas in the mid-tones of a photograph will appear more grainy than dark- or light-toned areas or areas that include fine detail.”

Do you have a link? I'd love to read it.

Yes you were, but probably for the wrong reason.As Kaouthia  stated those artifacts on the nose are a result of jpeg compression and are not present on the full res in any shape or form. They could have just as easily been present in a scanned negative/photo after linking on here via flickr.

Actually, that bokeh looks just like one of those old 55's. Those lenses had terrible bokeh, and this image does (look at the double-line bokeh in the upper left).

Of course it does, thats what it is. I was alluding to another false argument earlier that suggested the bokeh was to modern for it to be  film.

Terrible bokeh? Nah not to me. Its a classic lens in build and rendering and only £10 too!

Not to the complete publication. It is excerpted on Page 9 of this web site:

I used to have the book, but I'm sure it was an earlier edition. If I still have it, it's in a box somewhere in the basement.
