I checked out a copy of the DVD, Georgy Girl today. It’s a good movie and I was thinking about it being filmed in black and white (B&W).
I looked it up and the Internet (for what’s that is worth) says that it was filmed that way to save money. Fair enough, but it seems to me the B&W really added a lot to the movie.
Trying to imagine it in color, to me, would make the impact of the story go down.
I feel this way about another of my all time favourite movies, Come Back Little Sheba.
So any movies do you think are better for being filmed in B&W?
I’m not a movie buff so I’ll expand a bit.
In addition to the above, any movies filmed in color do you think would’ve been better or had more of an impact if filmed in B&W?
