Old Time B&W movies

I haven't watched a newly released movie in over ten years, and I don't get cable, so I rarely watch any movies at all. But I do like movies from the 1930s and 40s. I get them on DVD from the library - luckily my library is part of a network, so most movies are available from at least one town's system. I've gone through the Charlie Chan series twice now, and eventually I'll do it again. Same with Sherlock Holmes and any other mystery movies I can find. For some reason, I love the atmosphere those movies had, and now I find that color turns me off - I'd really rather see most movies in B&W.

Same with horror movies. I love the old-time movies, but I have no interest in watching some guy saw his own leg off. That's not horror, it's just gross-out.

Me and the Family Watched Arsenic and Old Lace the other night.....awesome flick.....thats one you should definitely check out.

"Insanity runs in my Family, It practically Gallops"

I'm a huge fan of the old movies, Can't go wrong w/ any Abbott and Costello flicks or The Marx Brothers.

Some of the great Classics you should check out....

The Grapes of Wrath
On the Waterfront
Citizen Kane
Casablanca
The Maltese Falcon (My Favorite Bogart Flick)
Key Largo
Mr Smith Goes to Washington
12 Angry Men
High Noon
To Kill a Mockingbird
Harvey
Mutiny on the Bounty
Billy Budd

Can't go wrong with any of those
If you want something bad to laugh at...anything by Ed Wood (Actually the Tim Burton flick "Ed Wood" is awesome)

Go Silent....there were some great silent pics made that nobody checks out anymore

The Hunchback of Notre Dame
The Phantom of the Opera
The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari
Nosferatu
Metropolis
Der Golem

Hope this helps...

and I also like the new stuff too......love a good Zombie flick..

If you like Nosferatu, try The Cabinet of Dr Caligari.

Classic Cinemas Online dot com has quite a few streaming movies that are out of copyright.

Both the Mr Moto with Peter Lorre and Mr Wong with Boris Karloff are pretty good crime mysteries if you like that sort of thing. Funny how guys known for horror movies both played Asians in detective films.

The B&W horror films they made during the 1950s and early '60s were often pretty good, even if they look pretty cheesy now. I grew up with them on television, so I have a taste for them. One of the scariest movies of my childhood was Invaders from Mars. A boy sees a space ship come down near his house, and people are gradually taken over by aliens. People joke about the rubber alien suits now, but it scared the crap out of me at the time.


I did like Young Frankenstein. There's some movies that really need color, but plenty could be done in black and white and be at least as good if not better. When you take out color, you make things less real and more dramatic.

If you want a great Peter Lorre flick get "M"....a very powerful flick about a Child Murderer.....probably his best film. It is in German w/ subtitles but it is an amazing film.

Its by Fritz Lang who also did Metropolis, which is another amazing film. It a Silent Film based on George Orwell's 1984....Fritz Lang was like the Steven Spielberg of the 20's

I loved the Mr. Moto flicks when I was younger....:kool:

"M" Trailer

If you get a chance check out Shadow of the Vampire.

Its about the making of Nosferatu. Its based on the legend that Max Schreck ,who played the vampire, was in actuality a real vampire.

John Malkovich plays FW Murnau and Willem DaFoe plays Max Schreck and its a pretty good flick.

Check it out of you get a chance.

The man who shot Liberty Valance has always been one of my favorite old time westerns.
