I just learned that kodak made Vericolor III and Portra in 46mm long rolls. 
I don't know for what type of cameras they were made for, but the 
unperforated film could be cut to be spooled on 127-film spools.

It seems that 46mm long rolls are not made any more by kodak. :-/

I found this auction on eBay: 

I know about Efke and Jessop. They are the same film, made by Fotokemika in 
Croatia. There's also Macophot UP100 in 127-film. I think this is made in 
Germany, but I'm not sure. Haven't tried this film though.

The conclusion is that there are only TWO b/w films available in 127-size, 
and both are 100 Asa.

Fotokemica once made their superb R17 (today R50) in 127, but that was at 
least 15 years ago. I would love to see this film being made again, or maybe 
another film with a lower speed plus a 400 speed film.
