Going back in time, films used to respond to a more limited range of the visible light spectrum. These orthochromatic films, unlike today's more common panchromatic films, were very sensitive to blue light, had accurate tonal representation of yellow and green light, but were hardly sensitive to orange. The films could be exposed to red light, barely (or not, rather) sensitising the film's emulsion.
The latter is also why darkrooms to this day use red lights, as with black-and-white printing orthochromatic photographic paper is used.
Panchromatic film, which today has mostly displaced orthochromatic films, does respond to higher (red) wavelengths and some films even cover the infrared spectrum.
Seeing as how the orthochromatic films responded mostly to blue light, would using a blue filter on modern panchromatic film replicate the tonal representation of ortho film? Using a blue filter would deny (most) of red light to pass through, onto the film.
I could not find the answer to this question online, but I have my doubts at my own theory. Mainly, using a blue filter would also mean a decreased sensitivity to yellow/green. As I have a limit knowledge on what filters are exactly out there, perhaps there is a filter (combination) that would come close, if not perfectly replicate this?
