It was shite in color. Garbage.
HD kind of ruins the Wizard of Oz.
death was creepy in the 7th seal
Since when where great old movies, limited to monochrome?
I read the op, & racked my brain.
I had nothing, so I posted great old movies, anyway.
Having more time to think, this fits the bill.
because that's what he asked for. OP sets the 'rules of the thread'.
it's like 'Post your 3 favorite albums' and people post 10 albums. That's not what the thread is asking for.
if Bling is specifically looking for very old B&W movies, posting recent color movies really doesn't contribute to what he's looking for, and actually just clutters up the thread.
Paths of Glory
To Kill a Mockingbird
The Manchurian Candidate
Inherit the Wind
12 Angry Men
Judgement at Nuremberg
Advise and Consent
Seven Days in May
To be fair, the OP wasn't super clear.
"Really old, black and white old" doesn't mean only post black and white movies, it means post movies of that era. But there is no hard line that marked the end of black and white and the switch to color. Color feature films go back to the thirties, while black and white movies were common until the mid-60s.
Interpreting the OP to use "black and white old" to describe an era (the time before color film was the norm) rather than as a specific request for black and white movies only is totally reasonable. It's left up for interpretation, whereas "post your three favorite albums" isn't.
You're right we should find Bling and kick his ass!!
It doesn't help that there was a long overlap from the first color movies (late 30s) to the time most movies were in color (ca. 1960) and even longer until B&W wasn't used at all.
if you had seen it on microdot you wouldnt say that...
I assume that is who it was written for. It can be the only explanation.
The Quiet Man
take it in its context,the mid 70s.talking computers,etc. had not been invented.special effects were usually not all that special either,but the monolith full of stars was epic...
Thanks for the support, OBK.
Classic movies, are just that, classic movies.
Whatever format, they are filmed in.
I could have put a couple of Vincent Price, movies here.
But they break the rules, they are filmed in colour.
OK, how about just drawing a line at 1965? After that point, color was the norm and B&W was only used for low budget (Night of the Living Dead) or as an aesthetic choice (Schindler's List).
Abbot and Costello Meet Frankenstein.
What about pre-flashed film stock? Can we include those?
Bit of the old in out, in out.
