Yup.There was also a change in Kodachrome c.1958, maybe earlier, I just don't remember. It went from Kochrome to Kodachrome II. There was enough difference to generate some criticism and a number of articles appeared on popular photography magazines comparing the two. The later version evidently had thinner emulsions and probably many other differences. It was sharper and had more accurate color rendition. I think it was the latter that got the attention, a lot of photographers preferred the older stuff. I suspect there have been other changes since then.
Of course your photographer may well have changed lenses or even cameras. I used both kinds of Kodachrome at the time and did not see as radical a change as you describe.
