Five Kurosawa films immediately come to mind...
High And Low
The Bad Sleep Well
And Ken Annakin/Andrew Marton/Bernhard Wicki/Gerd Oswald/Darryl F. Zanuck quickly come to mind...
The Longest Day
And not quite B&W, but de-saturated to the point of being almost monochromatic, except for the red chastity sash, Michael Radford...
Nineteen Eighty-Four (The British DVD release, the US DVD release is, quite disgustingly, in full saturation)
And, by the way, this one is a good example of a film that is better, by far, de-saturated.
