Yer fav B&W films

Unread post by Mississippi Blind Child Assburn »

Here are some biggies that Blind Child cannot understand the allure of:

THE THIRD MAN
CASABLANCA
THE 39 STEPS
SUNSET BOULEVARD
DOUBLE INDEMNITY
MALTESE FALCON


and especially PSYCHO ,which has to be the most over-rated movie ever.

Any Laurel and Hardy, I just can't help seeing them as Macca and Marco the other famous comedy act.

THE SEVENTH SEAL
NIGHT OF THE HUNTER
NIGHT OF THE DEMON
TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD
A CANTERBURY TALE
WINGS OF DESIRE ( but, like Wizard of Oz, it turns to colour)
KORZACK
THE BROWNING VERSION
REPULSION
ELEPHANT MAN
CITIZEN KANE
DEAD OF NIGHT
BLOW UP
THE HAUNTING
THE INNOCENTS
THE MAGNIFICENT AMBERSONS
THE BLUE ANGEL (both versions - jannings & curt jergens)
CARNIVAL OF SOULS
BLACK SUNDAY


Also these, but I think they were colour:

THE ROSE TATTOO
THE COLLECTOR
SUDDENLY LAST SUMMER
BLACK NARCISSUS
THE PAWNBROKER
