    What Are Your All Time Favorite Black & White Movies?

    A large number of the all time greatest movies are in B/W even though color has predominated since the 1950's.

    I have been a movie freak since 1948, averaging 3 to 4 films a week in the theater for decades. It's a sickness!

    Here are my Top Twenty Five All Time B/W flicks.

    1.Casablanca 1942 Humphrey Bogart
    2.The Best Years of Our Lives 1946 Myrna Loy
    3.The Maltese Falcon 1941 Humphrey Bogart
    4.It Happened One Night 1934 Clark Gable
    5.Some Like It Hot 1959 Marilyn Monroe
    6.Stalag 17 1953 William Holden
    7.Body & Soul 1947 John Garfield
    8.The African Queen 1951 Humphrey Bogart
    9.Destry Rides Again 1939 Marlene Dietrich
    10.Sabrina 1954 Humphrey Bogart
    11.Roman Holiday 1953 Gregory Peck
    12.Sunset Boulevard 1950 William Holden
    13.All About Eve 1950 Bette Davis
    14.The Manchurian Candidate 1962 Frank Sinatra
    15.The Sea Hawk 1940 Errol Flynn
    16.Dr.Strangelove 1964 Peter Sellers
    17.A Hard Days Night 1964 The Beatles
    18.12 Angry Men 1957 Henry Fonda
    19.The Apartment 1960 Jack Lemmon
    20.Foreign Correspondent 1940 Joel McCrea
    21.Citizen Kane 1941 Orson Welles
    22.Raging Bull 1980 Robert DeNiro
    23.Spellbound 1945 Ingrid Bergman

    Typically not my type movies, some of my ancient favorites are Wizard of Oz, all those corny BW Christmas movies, and I'm a huge fan of some of the old silents with Mary Pickford, and of course those 1930's classic monster movies, Frankenstein, Wolfman, Dracula, etc. And of course, throw in any of the classic westerns.

    You can have free speech or you can have income taxes but you cannot have both.
