When you watch an old movie, would you rather see it as it was originally seen, in black and white, or do you like it when color is added to them?

I would rather see the movie as it was originally shown. Maybe it's because I'm so old, I can remember when tv shows were all b&w, but I think colorizing an old movie looks unnatural and detracts from the movie.

I would rather see it black and white. My favorite movie is Arsenic and Old Lace and I saw it in color for the first time the other day. It was just very wrong!

Give me b&w any day!

I would have to say B&W, not to get all technical but they were shot to be in black and white, which is an art. To put them in color only detracts from the great talent that shot them in the first place.
