What are "SO" films and why is this stock special?

"SO stands for Special Order. It means that the stock has been produced to a special order because it does not appear in the catalog. If you request a particular film with, for example, non-standard perforations - you might ask for Color Negative stock with pos perfs it would have to be produced to Special Order. There would normally be a minimum order. Any stock that is not in the catalogue is given an SO number. If the stock has a large demand it will eventually be given a regular number and added to the catalog." - Brian
