Anyone Have the Courage to Return to Black and White?
Doubtless most who watch television or movies on TV have at least encountered black-and-white presentations. Older TV shows and so-called old movies (most well under 100 years old) were not filmed in color. And a generation enjoyed such presentations.
It is generally recognized that some films were better in black-and-white than others, and in fact, some, it is said, were better in black-and-white than they would have been had they been made in color, due to their atmospheric quality. Such films as Great Expectations, How Green was My Valley, Casablanca, and the Maltese Falcon were simply grand and highly atmospheric.
Has anyone the "guts" to release the occasional new piece in glorious B&W ? Or at least make a movie and release it in black-and-white alongside color? Personally, I'd be interested. Would you enjoy the experiment?
