"If you're thinking about a movie, it doesn't matter if it's black and white," some might paraphrase Michael Jackson
Before 1939's 'Wizard of Oz'
and 'Gone With The Wind,'
the use of color in movies wasn't widespread. There had been color films before those, but they weren't as well known as those two. It wasn't always a given that a film would use color.
Maybe that was a good thing.
Flavorwire recently took 10 great films
and converted them into black and white in an argument that it makes the movies look better.
On some, like the already noir 'The Departed,'
we have to agree it ups the badassery.
