It's All In Black and White

Here's a list of great Black and White movies. If you know me you know I love old movies. So, here's a list, off the top of my head, of must sees.

Born Yesterday-this is the original with William Holden and Judy Holliday
My Man Godfrey-Carole Lombard and William Powell
His Girl Friday-Cary Grant and Rosalind Russell
Sullivan's Travels-Veronica Lake and Joel Mcrea This is directed by Preston Sturges I think I'd recommend anything from him.

Anyway, this is just a mini list please add to it in the comment section. I'll revisit this topic from time to time as movies come to mind that I love.
OOOH The Thin Man, Bringing Up Baby,...So many I'll never run out.

It's not an OLD movie, but it's an awesome B&W movie: Some Like it Hot.

Oh, and of course, Casablanca - one of the best in B&W OR color :-)!

Bette Davis an endless list, Jezebelle, Now Voyager, Ahh I'm trying to think of the name of one...she plays this girl sleeping here way to the top, precode movie obviously...something like Mainstreet. I'll have to see if I can find it.

Love Some Like It Hot and of course Casablanca...I would add the Apartment with Jack Lemon and The Maltese Falcon for Bogart.

Citizen Kane! All the Film Noir classics: Farewell, My Lovely, Kiss Me Deadly, all the Marlowe movies, plus the Hepburn/Tracy films. Oh! I love Black and White! Oh, and Young Frankenstein, don't forget.
