I sure do love them. I have seen Charlie Chaplin classics, the Three Stooges, short films of Disney prior to "Snow White", early TV episodes before they hit the wide screen like Twilight Zone, Alfred Hitchcock, Star Trek, Batman, Superman and others.

I enjoy the Abbott & Costello movies, especially WHO'S ON FIRST. I rather choose the color style instead of black and white. Yeah, we have Who's on first, What's on second, I Don't Know's on third.

I cannot simply dismiss the efforts put up by those great men that time. Their works are immortals. An effective artist to me is not limited by colors. Thank you also Goergineo for reminding to me see those great film.

A great film will always be a great film, no matter how old it is. I love the old black and white horrors, the Carry Ons and other British comedies. Bob Hope and Bing Crosby's Road To series was brilliant and so much of their other work too. Laurel and Hardy's slapstick will never stop being hilarious. I love Danny Kaye, black and white or colour. Cary Grant too, he made some wonderful movies. Just because it is black and white doesn't mean it is bad. Give them a go.

Yes, there are loads of great black and white films. Just off the top of my head: "The Day the Earth Stood Still" "Seven Days in May" "The Manchurian Candidate" "The Thing from Another World" (I was watching that at a film society only last night.) "White Zombie" (I love Bela Lugosi.) Going even further back, there were also some classic films made in the silent era, like "Nosferatu", "Pandora's Box" and the Lon Chaney version of "The Phantom of the Opera". There's a cinema not far from where I live that occasionally shows silent films with live music, and one time I saw "Phantom of the Opera" with a specially-written score performed live by the Halle Orchestra. Brilliant.

Yes, there are still some decent black and white films that I have not seen. I suppose this is a matter of personal choice, but I do think that the age of a film is good enough reason to dismiss it.

I would not prefer black and white at all. I would much rather choose color style. Especially technicolor.

The same is here. Technicolor adds a lot to a movie.

Sometimes. There's so much new ones to watch but the old classic ones still sparkle. Some of them never cease to amaze me. Charlie Chaplin and Alfred Hitchcock's work are always timeless. Laurel and Hardy, All About Eve, Sunset Boulevard and Roman Holiday are still among my favorites.
