I watched a good B&W movie Saturday. It was released in 1966 and was made in B&W for the artistic effect. It was "The Train" with Burt Lancaster.
I remember that "The Train" and "Von Ryan's Express" with Frank Sinatra and Trevor Howard cam out at the same time. I didn't see either until they came out on TV. I saw The Train first, and thought it was great. Then I saw Von Ryan's Express, and thought it was ho hum, and it was in color.
Life's concerns should be about the 120lb pack your trying to get to the top of the mountain, and not the rock in your boot.

Oh my God!!! THE TRAIN was a juggernaut of excitement!  John Frankenheimer said that Burt Lancaster taught him more about action shots on one movie than he had learned in his whole young life, up to that point!!

I saw Von Ryan's Express at the theater in 1965.  I thought it was good.  I've got the DVD.  It is a GOOD example of a good old war movie.  It's not 'Bridge on the River Kwai' or 'Saving Private Ryan', but it's good old-fashioned Fictional entertainment with a speck of a historical back story in it.  

The direction could have been a little tighter.  Trevor Howard is such a Pompous HAM (as usual), Frank Sinatra ( a big favorite of mine ) sometimes speaks his lines a little too New JOISEY...., but, still, it was a first class movie.  It ain't Gone With The Wind.  

I did not see The TRAIN until the nineties on TV.  Freaking fantastic!

Well, this past week I watched "Doctor Blood's Coffin" and saw Hazel Court, and then I watched PREMATURE BURIAL ( also with Hazel Court ).  I had never seen that, and that was excellent.  Directed by Roger Corman. 

Then I saw The TALL MEN with Clark Gable.  I hadn't seen that in decades, and that was good.  They said Clark Gable had to stand on a box when he was standing right next to Robert Ryan because Ryan was 6 feet 4 inches tall.  

You can see a lot of this old stuff on Youtube.

I loved drive-in theaters.
