Young Frankenstein
Posted: 3 years, 11 months ago at Nov 9 23:30
Unless you know for sure, it's hard to tell whether or not the black and white was a choice when a movie it's from the 60s, since it was still expensive to shoot in black and white.
Posted: 3 years, 11 months ago at Nov 9 23:31
Young Frankenstein is already on the list.

Interesting list.
It's weird because all of these films were made in the modern era but some of them aren't set in this modern era.

I know I already commented liking the list; but I always like to go back to it.

Here are some other ones that I recently saw that would fit the category:

Lenny (1974) - Great performance from Dustin Hoffman
Dr. Strangelove (1964)
Night of the Living Dead (1968)
Man Bites Dog (1992)
The Spirit (2008)
Posted: 3 years, 3 months ago at Jul 15 13:25
Thanks Stehako, I'm adding Lenny and Man Bites Dog to the list. I guess The Spirit uses too much color to be considered black and white, and imdb lists it as a color film. Also, it says on imdb that Night of the Living Dead "was shot in black & white because there wasn't enough money to transfer it into color" and that Dr. Strangelove's "budget required it to be shot in black & white". As I said on the description, this list includes films that were shot in black and white by choice and not by lack of option.

Sydney Lumet's "Long Day's Journey into Night" and "The Pawnbroker" released in 1962 and 1963, respectively, were in black and white for creative reasons, lead by the cinematographer for both films, Boris Kaufman . The subject matter and artistic results make it clear.

**And now you can add this year's "Nebraska" - great movie!
