And why do you care whether someone wants to buy this movie on blu ray? Also to answer your question, yes it is necessary to buy the blu ray version when you care about picture quality. I guess that you are not very familiar with the concept of picture quality and what a blu ray version (if done correctly) can actually give you.

Well, why so serious? Old B&W films can never show that much details as newer color films do. This is a fact, no matter on DVD or BLURAY. TO BE FRANK, no matter how hard you try, you can never do it correctly on old B&W films(especially before 1970s).

That is what you may think, but not necessarily the truth. Films were always made for big cinema screens and even in the old days people didn't want to see blurred pictures when they paid for a cinema visit. If you are watching your films on a small screen or on your notebook it no doubt doesn't matter what format you choose, but seen on a big screen and with propper settings even films from the 40ies look as crisp if not sometimes better than recent ones. Just take a look at the blu ray releases of Ben Hur (1959), How the West Was Won (1962) or 2001 A Space Odyssey (1968). These might be the blu-rays with the best picture quality I have seen so far. And even small black and white productions like the here discussed Une Femme Mariee or even older Japanese films like Sansho the Bailiff offer such crisp details that for cinephiles like me it is the biggest pleasure to absorb these pictures with their eyes.
If you don't see (and hear) the difference it is good for you because you don't have to pay money for the more expensive format. There also are people who don't see why they should pay £ 15 for a bottle of red wine when they can get one for £ 3. And then there are people who do.
