    Favorite Black and White Movies

    I am a big Cary Grant, Kathrine Hepburn, Jimmy Stewart fan, and I was chatting about two of my favorite movies earlier on IM with a friend and so I got curious

    what are your favorite B&W films?

    Mine are
    Arsenic & Old Lace(Cary Grant PROVES you can be funny without being gross!)
    The Philidelphia Story(talk about star-studded cast, tremendous talent... and hilarious to BOOT! )
    Hush Hush Sweet Charlotte

    I love the old B&W movies! My favorite actress is Vivien Leigh and love her in "Waterloo Bridge", "Sidewalks of London", and especially "That Hamiliton Woman" in which she stars with her future hubby, Laurence Olivier.

    I also love the original "Pride and Prejudice" and "It Happened One Night". The Shirley Temple movies are great, too.

    "Arsenic and Old Lace" is HILARIOUS!

    I completely love Arsenic In Old Lace - That has to be one of the funniest movies out there.

    I would also have to go with Jimmy Stuart in Harvey. Cute movie about a drunk and his invisible friend Harvey the rabbit. :D

    Alfred Hitchcock can always get a thumbs up from me.

    Favorite Black and White Movies

    Tonichelle:

    Cary Grant is my favorite comedic actor. I also like Katherine Hepburn and Jimmy Stewart as well.

    Yes, "Arsenic and Old Lace" is a classic - my favorite comedy as well. And of course the Philadelphia Story is up there as well. I also like "Bringing Up Baby" another Grant/Hepburn movie.

    "It Happened One Night" is another one of my favorites. A 1934 movie starring Clark Gable and Claudette Colbert. The only movie to ever win all five major Academy Awards.

    "His Girl Friday" (Rosalind Russell), once married to suave editor Walter Burns (Cary Grant). The movie was adapted from the stage play THE FRONT PAGE by Ben Hecht and Charles MacArthur.

    Of course, the classic Hitchcock movies have been mentioned - " The Thirty Nine Steps" is a good one.

    Of course, "To Kill A Mockingbird" starring Gregory Peck is my favorite black and white movie of all time!

    There are so many, I love a lot of them.

    "It Happened One Night" is another one of my favorites. A 1934 movie starring Clark Gable and Claudette Colbert. The only movie to ever win all five major Academy Awards.
    Actually other two movies accomplished this feat after "It Happened One Night", but it took a long time for it to happen.

    It was "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest"(1975) and "The Silence of the Lambs" (1991)

    I enjoy Miracle on 34th street in black and white. I refuse to watch the colorized version.

    I forgot to mention Frank Capras' "It's A Wonderful Life" starring Jimmy Stewart. Now there is a classic!

    You guys should watch L'Avventura, a film by Michaelangelo Antonioni in 1960. It's very different from the typical Hollywood narrative in that you have to look at the pictures that Antonioni creates on-screen, as opposed to just waiting to see what will happen next. I highly recommend it.

    Bachelor Mother with Ginger Rogers and David Niven is great.

    Forgot about "Father of the Bride"! Loved that one! It's much better than the one with Steve Martin.
