Wierd!  KR was the designator for Eastman Digital Sound Recording film, 2374. 
Made only in 35mm, Estar base, this film was introduced in 1990 for Cinema 
Digital Sound, and discontinued in 1992.  Can't imagine it finding its way to 
a telecine!

You're right -- KZ is the designator for Kodak Vision 200T film, 5274 & 7274.

Hope this helps.

PS  Gary, I thought your "Dear Colorist" article on New Telecine Tools for    
 Exposure Evaluation was excellent!  Well written and very informative.
