Probably early Kodak Kodachrome. They really kept their color well over time, but the speed of the film was around ASA 10. You needed a lot of light to get a decent, fast exposure, or a very long exposure.

My father has a lot of Kodachrome slides of railroad stuff he took in the 1950s. They are still just as bright and sharp as they were then.

The link below for the before and after meth photos was pretty gross. I was never tempted, but that stuff really messes a person up.

Here is the entire set on flickr. Approximately 1600 slides. Lots of World War II stuff (mostly home front, though).
