I`ve found an 17 years out of date developer witch "ORWO R-09" written on it. Do you think it will still work??

PS: My friend says that it`s some kind of "rodinal".

R09 is the original formula for Rodinal. It is still produced today by Calbe. Rodinal has outstanding keeping properties, and there are stories of people using 40 year old bottles of Rodinal and still getting results. If the developer has oxidized you are out of luck, but why not try it on a roll and see what happens. Let us know if it works out.
