I like watching Buster Keaton or Charlie Chaplin. Don't know why, but black and white movies has more charm and secret. You have to use your imagination..

My favvourite movie is 'Casablanca' ( 1942)

This is an American romantic drama film directed by Michael Curtiz based on Murray Burnett and Joan Alison's unproduced stage play.  The film stars Humphrey Bogart.

I personally through the decades of the mostly-black-and-white era (most movies, most TVs if you weren't rich, newspaper photos, textbook illustrations, and most snapshots). Certainly, when you move to a more advanced technology, something is always lost. But I don't have much nostalgia for it.

I'll make some obvious choices: Citizen Kane (Orson Welles). Second choice: Casablanca (Humphrey Bogart, Ingrid Bergman). Third: Charlie Chaplin in Modern Times.

Here's an odd one: "H. G. Wells' Things to Come." Apparently the good prints have mostly been lost, even supposedly "restored" DVDs don't convey the sweep of the original.

When they started to "colorize" old black-and-white classics, people started to joke: "Have you seen the new all-color version of The Wizard of Oz?" (The first reel, set in Kansas, was in black-and-white; once she lands in Oz, everything is in color.) (It always bothered me that our first view of Oz is a colored scene framed by a colored doorway, when it ought to have been a color scene framed by a black-and-white doorway. That would have been quite possible with 1930s technology.
