While on vacation last week, I was able to catch a showing of "M" by Fritz Lang. TCM was having some kind of Peter Lorre homage.
I thought the film was terrific, despite B/W and subtitles.
fwiw M is one of my favorite movies ever, what a story!
Some totally shocking scenes.
If you like that style B&W films, look at Ivan the Terrible, where Eisenstein also does tremendous job with that medium.
My friend, the mastery of that film is due in large part TO black and white!
Incredible film and Lorre could have been an international star but for the
political climate of the day. As is stands he was one of the greatest character
If you should get to see M on the big screen, do so.

Yes it's amazing when I hear that comment. What Charles Laughton did with light was amazing in Night of the Hunter, his only film as a director.

Aw geez, guys. I like B&W too. In fact, my favorites are The Three Stooges.
Agree. And it would have looked pretty dumb otherwise, as the year was 1931.
