Some of them are terrible. Everyone seems to have a posh, screechy voice, annoys me for some reason. Like the wizard of oz and a christmas carol though.

banned#12

I have few on DVD like Arsenic and old lace, It's a wonderful life, The apartment, Rififi amongst others.

They seem to have been able to do things then that you couldn't do now as most modern films seem to either have to be gritty, ubsurd or big budget over the top.

I love good movies, and there are plenty of great old black and white movies.

Love the Tracy/Hepburn movies, Cary Grant, Errol Flynn, Chaplin etc.

Casablanca is always great, Citizen Kane and The Third Man are excellent, early Hitchcock...

There's something a bit magical about watching them - they take you to a different age and they're a great way of taking a break.

I love B&W movies, the kids dont get it :thinking:

few of my favourites : A Matter of Life and Death David Niven allthough it was both colour & B&W & Its a Wonderful Life,now they have a colour version of this as well :thinking: The original Miracle on 34th Street, Scrooge as csiman said, list is endless.

watched the colourised version last week. Just wasnt the same as the B&W one.

Part of the reason most of us like B&W movies is because we only get to see the good ones - the bad ones are never screened or not remembered by anyone.....

There are some classics out there (Twelve Angry Men, To Kill a Mockingbird, Fort Apache.....)

Sad thing is my younger brother won't watch anything pre-1990ish if he has the choice as he thinks of them as 'old' and that somehow that is a bad thing.

He's 27. :roll:

In my english lesson we watched the 1949 installment of Great Expectations I nearly fell asleep and for some reason i went into a dark cupboard and started to text people, as my phone was the only light in there. I dont like them.
