Wow ! what a question... How long you got ?
I have a whole list is fact I would go so far as to say that many of the black and white originals are far better entertainment than the so called modern re-makes they spawned.
Inherit the Wind.
The African Queen
Twelve Angry Men
The Dam Busters
The Cruel Sea
I could go on... but there again many of the old movies were made by people who beiieved in what they were doing and at least tried to respect history and the truth.
Not like today where the emphasis seems to be only on being bigger with more spectaculor effects than the one before little storyline and even less plot.
Tough question but it would have to go to the movie I just got done watching. Which would be In the Region of Ice.
To Kill a Mockingbird
Breakfast at Tiffany's
That's just for starters... I could go on and on
My fair lady with Audrey Hepburn. and Rex Harrison 1964 classic
Merlin Fraser, I love you!! Another B&W fan. Merlin is right - there are just so many to chose from. It was a time when things like plot, believability, lighting and great film making were something to be strived for. Glorious black and white, the way films were meant to be seen.
I have to repeat "The African Queen"; but, would like to add:
To Kill a Mockingbird
The Great Escape
Three Came Home
Right now I'm going to say The Killers with Burt Lancaster and Ava Gardner. Its a classic film noir thriller based on a short story by Ernest Hemmingway. This is a movie I would love to see Quentin Tarantino do a remake of. I happen to think its perfect for him.
I like the movie as much for the way the story is told, as much as the actual story itself. There's more I could say, but I'm going to go for concision, for a change. I have many more selections, but you only asked for one. I'm going to also follow instructions, for a change.
Take it light, David R. Bradley.

I love to watch old black and white movies because these have wonderful acting and storylines. Yes, black and white movies may not have all of the special effects of today's films, but actually this is why I love them so. There were some very good actors back in the day, and I enjoy...

What's that black and white movie where a little blonde girl plays piano and kills another kidThis movie was made in the late 50s or early 60s. The girl had long blonde hair, and she played this one piano piece over and over.
