Anybody else like those old movies?

Personally, I'm a huge fan. I got into watching them last summer. I ended up watching...

- Psycho.
- Vertigo.
- The Birds.
- Seven Samurai (Again).
- The Great Dictator.

I'll probably go on another kick and watch some more Alfred Hitchcock and Charlie Chaplin. I'm a fan of them both.

I can definitely second liking lots of old movies. Seven Samurai and Kurosawa's other flicks are all pretty great.

I'm a big Alfred Hitchcock fan myself, Psycho is one of my favourite movies.If you haven't seen them already, you should watch Rope and Strangers On A Train. I've watched Onibaba not so long ago, really good flick, still have to see Kuroneko, it's supposed to be great. Old universal horrors are my favourite though.

If you like Hitchcock you may like the films of William Castle and Val Lewton. Both were amazing with what they do. As far as Hitchcock goes you'd probably like Frenzy, Shadow of a Doubt, North by Northwest or Rear Window. Some Non-Hitchcock standout mystery/Suspense are Charade, Straight-Jacket, Mirage and Wait Until Dark . Another to try if you like Chaplin is Harold Lloyd. He's very underrated but fantastic at the same style comedy from the same era.

Alfred Hitchcock is an amazing director. I loved the movies Vertigo and Psycho. Wasn't Vertigo in color though?

Have you seen Young Frankenstein, To Kill a Mockingbird, and Schindler's List? I highly recommend the first two if you have yet to see them. I do recommend Schindler's List as well, but I still need to finish that movie myself. I remember watching most of it, but had to turn it off and haven't had a chance to restart it. It's like a 3hour movie so it's a bit intimidating to sit through. Oh I almost forgot.. if you have yet to see Citizen Kane watch that as well.

I love them. But then again, I have seen some pretty horrendous old b&w films, a few so bad they're good again (*^▽^*)

I enjoy them. Abbot and Costello films are my favorites, and I can't go wrong with Red Skelton. Yes, when it comes to black-and-white films, I do favor comedies the most. There are alot of miscellaneous films on MeTV's Svengoolie that I end up catching.

I love, love old movies. Them being in black in white doesn't make much of a difference. Betty Davis, Grace Kelly, James Dean, and Vivian Leigh are some of my favorite actors. The Twilight Zone is one of my favorite old shows too, even though it gave me nightmares as a child.

I like black and white when it's used as a literary technique...

Like the music video, someone like you by Adele, or the voice within by Christina Aguilera.

I don't really watch black and white because they lacked the tech to do colour lol...

just about anything by Alfred Hitchcock

n it's a series rather than a film, but i adore The Twilight Zone. idk why but things are creepier when they're in B&W lol... and especially those without sound

The Shop Around the Corner is probably my favorite though. Which has nothing to do with horror/scifi haha

I like B&W films... The old TV shows could get a bit smarmy but they had good messages in them.

Paths of Glory
Dr. Strangelove
Mrs. Miniver (one of the best WW2 films)
Hangmen Also Die

Most of the TV shows that I saw would start off in B&W and after about 1964 to '66 they were all in color.
