Black and White Films for People Who Don't Like Black and White Movies

This isn't a list of the best black and white films (such an endeavor may be foolish), but rather a list of twenty-five films that exemplify the strengths of B & W movies. There were a couple of ground rules as this list was being designed. First, black and white movies that probably everyone has already seen, such as Casablanca and Citizen Kane, were not considered. Those are phenomenal, landmark black and white films, but chances are even the black and white film haters have seen them already.Hopefully these twenty five extraordinary works, listed here in chronological order, will help convey the magic of black and white films.
