Did movie legend Jimmy Stewart own mystery camera found in Columbia Gorge?

Update from one of their Facebook pages
As far as the camera film being developed, bluemooncamera was sadly unable to process it. They called and stated that with that amount of exposure to light and other geological elements, it was impossible to find a remaining image. Luckily, this is NOT the end for the camera! This month or next we will be doing a movie premiere with a camera showing at the historical movie theatre in Portland. Then from there will choose where and which museum we will be putting the camera. As well as continue to search for possible owners of the camera itself. This has been a crazy experience finding the camera and am so excited to see what it has turned out to be.
