That IS pretty good. I have the one with the Type O Negative soundtrack, it is frickin cool! Did you ever see Shadow of the Vampire?

This is another one of my b/w favorites:

Not much into Type O Negative, but that probably would be cool. And no, never seen Shawdow of the Vampire, that I can recall.

I lurve this film. For a 50's movie it's intriguing and witty. I reccomend it - even if your not a boxing fan. ;)

Probably doesn't count, since it's a rather new movie compared to the others mentioned, but since it's one of the only black and white films I've seen (since I'm 14, and don't care all that much for old movies), I'd say:

Schindlers List

The silent "Phantom of the Opera". Not the technicolor(AMAZING TECHNICOLOR:D ) one with Claude Rains...The Lon Chaney, good ol' fashioned one. The only Phantom movie that resembles the orginal plot...:mad:

I'm a real big Phantom phan (fan), so it means much to me *sniff*:)

The longest day is a fantastic movie. But I'm going to have to go with either "Inherit the Wind" or "On the Waterfront".

NO LeXX, NO.

The black and white "Dracula" movie was actually called Nosferatu, so was the character.

The Fly and The FLy 2 where released in "DeLuxe" color

And only clips of Steamboat willy where ever shown.

Of course, I was a kid when Young Frankenstein was out ... and did see it - of course, I was 8, it was with some hesitation that my mom let my dad take me and my brother, and much of it went over my head. Still one of my faves ...

So when I think of B&W I think of them as 'classic' (no choice BUT to be B&W) and 'modern' (artistic choice).

Classic:
- Dracula
- Phantom
- Them
- Creature from the Black Lagoon
- King Kong
- Nosferatu
- Marx Brothers - Night at the Opera and Duck Soup
- Charlie Chan mysteries (good for a rainy saturday when I was young)

Modern:
- Young Frankenstein
- Stardust Memories (Woody Allen ... not at all funny)
- Zelig (another Woody Allen, quite good)
- Eraserhead (not remotely funny ... so why can't I stop laughing?)

... there are so many ...

Wrong, Nosferatu (starring Max Schreck, a German silent movie c1911) was loosely based on the novel by Bram Stoker (the creator of Dracula, a fiction based novel [c1896] that was inspired by Vlad the Impaler), but they could not get the rights to call it Dracula.(there is a movie based on the actors and producers called 'Shadow of the Vampire' starring William Defoe as Max Schreck)

Dracula (1931) did get the rights to call it that, and was based closely to the book that Bram Stoker had written.
It was in black and white and starred Bela Lugosi, one of the greatest black and white actors of all time along side with Boris Karlof.

For the Johnny Depp fans, the finest actor of our time.
This can be a difficult movie to track down. I could only find the VHS version for my collection, but a deffinate must see.

Yeah, that flicks not bad. If I remember right Neil Young did all the music, which mostly consisted of guitar work.

But for a suave B&W Johnny Depp movie, I gotta go with Ed Wood. Especially since it also had Bill Murray, and Martin Landau as a heroin addicted Bella Lugosi.

Yeah, Neil Young did the guitar work in 'Dead Man'.
It also starred Crispin Glover, Lance Henriksen, Michael Wincott, Gabriel Byrne, Eugene Byrd, Billy Bob Thorton, Steve Buscemi, Iggy Pop, John Hurt, Robert Mitchum and many other fine actors actors and actresses.


Ed Wood was also great, being a huge Lugosi, Depp, and Burton fan, I thought it was a superb flic.

Bill Murray is great too, "I got to get into this dude's pelt and crawl around for a few days. Who's the gopher's ally. His friends. The harmless squirrel and the friendly rabbit." - Caddyshack (sorry, knida off topic, not a quote from Ed Wood, but I had to.)

Well since I see there is another David Lynch fan among you, and someone posted 'Eraserhead'.

This is also another fine movie by Lynch based on a true story of a man with elaphantitis named John Merrick.
Starring John Hurt and Anthony Hopkins.

The Elephant Man (1980) (http://www.addmovies.com/images/covers/2002-05-07-09-28-48.jpg)

Here is a poem by John Merrick:
Tis true my form is something odd,
But blaming me is blaming God;
Could I create myself anew
I would not fail in pleasing you.
If I could reach from pole to pole
Or grasp the ocean with a span,
I would be measured by the soul;
The mind's the standard of the man - John Merrick

I've seen too many B&W films...they're all just a blur in my head apart from a few...

It's a Wonderful Life
Seven Samurai
Harvey
Them!
Fiend Without A Face
Quatermass 1/2
The Day The Earth Stood Still
King Kong (1933)
20 Million Miles to Earth
The Beast From 20,000 Fathoms
The old Margaret Rutherford 'Miss Marple' films were good
Basil Rathbone's 'Sherlock Holmes' films...
Laurel and Hardy films by the dozen
Westerns...war films...gah, they're all a blur.

I remember watching Eraserhead late one night. Disturbing...

Some Like It Hot is good.

Psycho was never scary at all for me - in fact, I thought it was quite boring.

Ed Wood was also good - I reckon Mr. Landau deserved an oscar for his performance as Bela Lugosi.

You know...I can't remember whether some films are B&W or not. Lol... :p
