I agree totally with this reviewer when he deplores the attitude of viewers who won't look at a film just because it's, as they say, 'in the old black and white'. The quality of many black and white films is exceptional and there are many which would lose by being filmed in colour. There's an intensity and a definition about many black and white films which is lost when transferred to colour. But - unless you have come to appreciate this - it's useless talking. Sometimes reviewers say silly things like 'Even though this film was made in the 40's, it's still quite good''. It's like saying 'Even though he wrote in the 16th century and in a different kind of English, Shakespeare is actually quite good'.
