Answer #8

Many great movies are black and white. Dr. Strangelove, Bridge on the River Kwai, Kind Hearts and Coronets, Repulsion, and most of Alfred Hitchcock’s films, If you limit yourself to color you miss out on all of these.

Black & White films are still made, often for effect or to evoke nostalgia or other feelings. There is the already mentioned Dr. Strangelove but also Night of the Living Dead, Schindler’s list, Young Frankenstein, Dead Men Don’t Wear Plaid and Ed Wood.

Black & White is actually more difficult to shoot than color. We are already used to a lot of variation in color in different lighting so we have surprisingly wide latitude for what looks natural. B & W is much less forgiving, lighting and exposure need to be adjusted much more critically. If you watch a color movie converted to B & W it typically doesn’t look very good but a well shot B & W movie can be visually stunning.

Answer #9

I should have mentioned the Marx Brothers films. They are still among the funniest movies ever made.

Answer #10

My mum has a big collection of black and whites that I’m starting to watch. I love some of the Billy Wilder films I’ve seen, especially The Apartment, Some Like it Hot and Double Indemnity. I’ve watched a couple of Hitchcocks too. Not seen and Marx Brothers, bit watched soem Laurel and Hardy. I couldn’t limit myself to just colour films, in the same I don’t listen to just modern music.
