B & W Films

What are your favourite Black & White Films ?
For me it was the Angry Silence, Cathy come home and similar types of films covering social topics which were probably more relevant to me at the age I was at that time.

Re: B & W Films

You know...
I've never actually watched Casablanca all the way through. Every time it's been on TV something ends up interrupting it. Another BW film I've not seen yet is Citizen Kane - frequently voted the best film by critics.
Call me an old romantic but I like Brief Encounter Cheesy
Any Laurel and Hardy and the early Road To films with Bob Hope and Bing Crosby.

Loads of the old slapstick comedy films.

I preferred Kodak, over Ilford.... but can`t remember why.... possibly because it seemed to be more available in more shops!!!  Roll eyes

I'm of the colour era but The Innocents (1961) is a favourite.

I saw the old Munsters and Addams Family TV shows in black and white, do they count?
Pretty good, John Astin was hilarious as Gomez.

I'm a fan of Ilford FP4 though their Delta 100 is magnificent when you can find it.
Now Zen, but a +Net residue.
