Hmmm...

Five Kurosawa films immediately come to mind...

Yojimbo
Sanjuro
Red Beard
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.

I've decided to pick up this project again, but I'm not concerned with a time frame on the black and white films. In fact, a few of the films I plan on seeing this month are silents. Just thought I'd invite you to check in from time to time this month - A Black and White February (2013). I began yesterday with Un Chien Andalou.

Will definitely be hitting the Orphic trilogy this time around. And hoping for A&F lister The Phantom of the Opera in the next couple days sometime. (I've not seen it.)

I've seen Murnau's. I didn't know the new one was in black and white. Thanks for that!
