Double Indemnity

Ann said...

Lost Horizon. Yes it's kitschy but that's half the appeal. For some reason this movie has gotten into my holiday season rotation. We watch it every year sometime after Thanksgiving and before New Year's Day.

Thia said...

Clerks, Maltese Falcon, and a british horror movie I just saw. The American title is Haunted Hotel, which is the WORST title and not at all what the movie is about.

DarylsBigFan said...

The film of a streetcar as it travels down Main Street San Francisco in 1906. Fascinating view of real life a hundred years ago.

Casablanca

MAD MAX FURY ROAD - Black & Chrome edition (amazingly done!)

Arsenic and Old Lace
The Birds

Well since scenes seem to be allowed and it doesn't have to be an entire movie. Definitely concur with NBK...also "and when I arrive at my destination, I am going to Kill Bill".

momo said...

Sunset Blvd. Mildred Pierce, Of Human Bondage

I too loved Young Frankenstein and I will throw in Paper Moon just because... damn just watched it again recently and LMAO.

So many great choices, although some forgot the black and white thing.

Kikibunny said...

Streetcar named desire...I spent several winters in the house in the French quarter around the corner from the cathedral where Tennessee William's finished writing the play...every morning the tours would come by pointing it out...the interior looked just like the interior of the house in the movie...desire was the name of the project's if you head all the way down royal street, I believe. Some serious vibes in that house, great balcony with the wrought iron. My friend would have strippers the last few nights of Mardi gras... totally insane.

La Morena said...

Se7en and In Cold Blood . Two great Halloween films to check out .

Half Domer Homer said...

Paths of Glory

James Howlett said...

That movie was so brilliant with it's use of colors. Everytime something green shows up you know someone is going to die.

James Howlett said...

Kurosawa's best stuff is b&w. Modern films I'd say Clerks, Man who wasn't there, Raging Bull, Sin City.

Empress Lockness said...

The Bad Seed
Night of The Hunter

Karmahasstruck said...

Test Pilot, To Kill a Mockingbird, It's a Wonderful Life, Scrooge (with Alastair Sim)

Houdini said...

Zorba the Greek

zerooptions said...

stranger than paradise and nosferatu

Vita said...

Empress Lockness-- Night of the Hunter is a genuine creepfest! Between that and Cape Fear, my knees buckle whenever I see Robert Mitchum!
Also, Bad Seed is instant family/friend mass emails whenever we catch it...creepy, yet loads of ongoing jokes

Vince said...

Night of the Living Dead

hhstarr said...

Cliche but Citizen kane. But if you cN count one with some color, Raging Bull is a master piece. You dont resize the blood is red, you are so into it. And I hate boxing.

Melissa MM said...

The man with the golden arm, Psycho, To kill a mockingbird, What ever happened to Baby Jane, It's a wonderful life.And Pedro Infante movies XD

Arsenic and Old Lace
I Remember Mama
It Happened on Fifth Avenue

Hootspa said...

Not only my fave B&W, but my fave overall: "Dodsworth" So far ahead of its time.

PhillyWilly said...

I'm surprised not to see one "On the Waterfront"

Me Again said...

Jean Cocteau's Beauty and the Beast....just visually stunning.

Any Ray Harryhausen ...

flyingtiger said...

Battleground
All quiet on the western front (Lew Ayres)
Red badge of courage (Audie Murphy)
A walk in the sun
12 O'clock high
Casablanca (A guy's romance story)
and, of course, God is my co-pilot

Erik said...

Every single film noir.

Vita said...

Erik-- probably goes without asking, but do you watch Noir Alley on TCM? Several great ones already mentioned, I also like Dark Passage

Another fun/sweet film is Ball of Fire with Barbara Stanwyck and Gary Cooper

Unknown said...

The Best Years of Our Lives

just sayin' said...

Rear Window.

PhillyWilly said...

north by northwest....oh wait, maybe it's just 1950s Eva Marie Saint. hubba hubba

Aquagirl said...

Asking ‘what’s your favorite Black & White movie’ is the same as asking what’s ur favorite movie in color. There is no one answer.

Young Frankenstein

GentleBreeze said...

Such an excellent representation of B/W movies. I can't add anyone to it except maybe Sullivan's Travels?

The Haunting was on tonight. I had to watch it with the sound on 0. Truly the scariest movie ever filmed.

ladyskipper102 said...

Rear Window was in color.

ladyskipper102 said...

1. Young Frankenstein
2. Gaslight
3. The Manchurian Candidate
4. 12 Angry Men



rednoir said...

Strangers on a Train

Shadow of a Doubt

Psycho

Paths of Glory

AbbyRock said...

If we can have more than one favorite, then I'm adding:

Goodbye Mr. Chips
Scrooge with Alistair Sim
Mrs. Parkington
Random Harvest
Mr. Blandings Builds His Dream House
My Man Godfrey

Hixipixi said...

Young Frankenstein

Count Jerkula said...

2nd Young Frankenstein.

To just go old movies, it is too tough. Have to break em down to Comedy and drama. Cant go wrong with City Lights or Modern Times. Marx Bros miss the cut because they always threw in some boring love songs, so broads would sit through their movies.

For drama, 12 Angry Men, Key Largo and Maltese Falcon.

Monster movie, Bride Of Frankenstein & Dracula.

In the all important Black and White Poontang category, Lauren Bacall, Myrna Loy and the cute piece of ass from 1969's The Babysitter.

Emerson Shiff said...

1960 The Little Shop Of Horrors

Goodau said...

Mrs Miniver
Madame Curie
To Kill a Mockingbird
Citizen Kane
and many more.

shakey said...

All of The Thin Man movies. Young Frankenstein. Paths to Glory. The Bad Seed. In Cold Blood (great book, too). Mrs. Miniver.

CityGirl said...

All About Eve
