       Response Letter filed October 14, 2021

       Form 10-K filed March 16, 2021
       Note 20 -- Retirement Plans, page 83

   1.                                                   ASC 715-20-50-1d states
that the objectives of benefit plan asset disclosures include
                                                        providing users of the
financial statements with an understanding of the classes of plan
                                                        assets and any
significant concentrations of risk therein. It is not clear whether your
                                                        existing disclosures,
or your proposed revisions, fully satisfy these objectives. For
                                                        example, your
disclosure on page 88 reports that $1.1 billion of Plan Assets are invested
                                                        in government bonds,
but three pages later you disclose that the entire balance is
                                                        comprised of
derivatives. You now propose to revise your table of Plan Assets
                                                        to recharacterize these
assets as Hedge Funds. This proposed revision does not clearly
                                                        communicate that the
hedge fund assets appear to be primarily comprised of derivative
                                                        instruments. Please
provide us with a schedule that segregates your December 31, 2020,
                                                        hedge fund investments
into more detailed asset classes so we can better understand the
                                                        nature of your Plan
investments and whether your proposed revisions are consistent with
                                                        the cited objectives.
The detailed asset classes should be consistent with the relevant risk

         factors that materially impact each investment. For example, it may be
appropriate to
         separate your hedge fund investments based on their primary underlying
         e.g. interest rate derivative instrument hedge funds, foreign exchange
         instrument hedge funds, distressed investments hedge funds, natural
resource investment
         hedge funds, etc. Please see ASC 715-20-50-1d.5 and the examples
provided in ASC 820-
         10-55-100 and 107 as well as the analogous guidance in ASC ASC
2.       In your response number 4 you state that the notional amount of your
government bonds
         futures contracts was $1.6 billion at December 31, 2020. Please expand
your footnote
         disclosure to include this information and to clarify whether the net
carrying value of
         these contracts is the ($4m) reported in the table on page 88.
3.       Please provide the disclosures required by ASC 715-20-50-1.n regarding
related party
         transactions and the amount of the Registrant's securities that are
included in Plan Assets,
         if any.
4.       Please explain the page 89 reference to "derivative-linked hedge
funds" and clarify
         whether this disclosure is intended to communicate that those hedge
funds are primarily
         comprised of derivative instruments. Further, please explain to us how
you calculated the
         4% equity exposure and 29% government bond exposure measures reported
on page 91. If
         those amounts are essentially the carrying value of your
derivative-linked hedge funds,
         then please disclose the notional amount of the underlying derivative
contracts and
         quantify the amount by which your loss exposure on these contracts
exceeds carrying
5.       On page 91 you disclose, "In instances where exposures are obtained
via derivatives, the
         majority of the exposure value is available to be invested, and is
typically invested, in a
         diversified portfolio of hedge fund strategies that generate returns
in addition to the return
         generated by the derivatives." Please help us to better understand
this disclosure by
         applying this characterization to a specific Plan Asset that reflected
this fact pattern at
         December 31, 2020. Quantify and fully describe the exposure and
explain how you
         concluded that the corresponding portfolio of hedge fund strategies is
         "diversified." It is not clear whether the existing disclosure fully
depicts the degree of risk
         in your derivative-linked hedge funds.
6.       Response number 1 in your letter states that $.8 billion of Plan
Assets do not carry
         redemption rights. Please expand your footnote disclosure to include
this information.
         Also, for each class of investment, please provide quantified
disclosure about any
         restrictions and/or limits on your ability to redeem plan investments.
See ASC 820-10-50-
         6A. If approximately 25% of your total plan assets are invested in
real estate funds,
         private equity funds, and natural resource investments that may not
mature or be sellable
         in the near term without significant loss than that information should
be clearly disclosed.
7.       Your disclosure on page 87 states that there are no significant
concentrations of risk in
         Kodak's defined benefit plan assets. Please provide a disclosure that
clearly reconciles this
         statement with the disclosure on page 91 that 29% of Plan assets
represents US

         Government bond exposure obtained via derivatives.
8.       On page 87 you disclose that your investment objectives include
maintaining broad
         diversification between and within asset classes and fund managers.
However, the
         disclosure does not indicate whether your objective was met with
respect to your fund
         managers. Please disclose the extent to which any investment or fund
manager controlled
         over 10% of Major US Plan Assets in 2020.
9.       We understand that the dollar amounts in your 10-K disclosure of
December 31, 2020
         Major U.S. Plans assets on page 88 will differ to an extent from the
corresponding KRIP
         investment balances included in the audited financial statements filed
with your Form
         5500. However, there appears to be significant disparities between the
asset classes
         presented in the 10-K and the asset classes presented on the audited
Statements of Net
         Assets Available for Benefits. For example, the 10-K reports $383
million of equity
         securities whereas the Statements of Net Assets appears to show $1.4
million of common
         and preferred stocks. Please explain this disparity. Also, for each
asset class
         balance reported on page 88, please tell us the amounts thereof that
are comprised of
         (1) Partnership/Joint Venture Interests, (2) Common/Collective Trusts,
and (3)
         Commingled Hedge Funds as presented on the Statements of Net Assets.
10.      Based on your response number 2 and the information in your Form 5500,
it appears that
         the actual amount of government bonds in your Major U.S. Plan Assets
at December 31,
         2020 and 2019 approximated $5 million and $39 million, respectively,
whereas the
         amounts reported in your 10-K were $1.1 billion in both periods.
Consequently, it appears
         that the amount of Plan Assets comprised of government bonds was 1% or
less instead
         of the 30% reported in your 10-K. Please tell us whether this error,
combined with any
         other similar classification errors, constitutes a material weakness
in your internal
11.      We note that virtually all Major U.S. Plan assets, except for
investment grade bonds, are
         measured at NAV. Please explain to us what steps you took in
determining that each
         individual investment within the reported $3.254 billion of NAV plan
assets met the
         requirements of ASC 820-10-15-4 to be measured at NAV. Clarify also
how you
         determined that the entire cash and cash equivalents balance lacked a
readily determinable
         fair value.
       You may contact Al Pavot at 202-551-3738 or Terence O'Brien at
202-551-3355 if you
have any questions.
