I examined channels. Red was only one with no detail. I duped the green channel, manipulated it so that it looked more like a typical red channel, then I pasted it into the red channel.
I used the following techniques to finish:
-Curves to add contrast and get fleshtones closer to a normal range.
-Clone set to normal and darken and lighten, and set to multiply and screen. Used these to get rid of dust and scratches and to darken and lighten areas.
-Paintbrush set to color to paint proper color where I could not improve it in other ways.

I don't understand. What did you do to the green chanel for it to look more like a typical red channel?

Hi,
I examined the red and green channels in a good image. I noticed things like the green channel should look pretty much like a regular greyscale version of a photo.
The red channel in the good image was lighter overall except in the darkest areas and the faces were a lot lighter and more blurry. So I whipped out the dodge and burn and blur tools and went to work on the duplicated green channel to make it look more like the new red channel that I needed. I may have also used curves to light the channel or channels.
Even after this, I had a lot of work, but a major problem had been helped because then I had a ballpark normal-looking red channel rather than just a bunch of blurs in the red channel.
