I'm going to stick with modern Black and white films I have loved. All have a unique feel to them in some form or another.

A Field In England:

Dead Man:

I'm going to say the island sequences of the original King Kong  There's all these little details O'Brien put into the sets, like seeing birds fly through the air, or how you could see the snake beast actually swimming in the lake of Kong's lair.

The big artisitc influnce in Kong is Gustave Dore, a print maker best know for his illustrations for Dante's Divine Comedy.   You can really see that influence on the island scenes.

I'll probably think of other later, but the first that came to my mind was John Frankenheimer's "The Train":

What caught my attention is that it's B/W yet the camerawork is extremely inventive and dynamic, like something a much modern director would have done. And those dutch angles are terrific.

Due to the horrifying nature of this film, no one will be admitted to the theatre.

CARNIVAL OF SOULS (1962)  As cheap and cheezee as I think this film is, I love it, it's a top favorite, and the camerawork is awesome.

A couple of years ago the HP Lovecraft historical society made a movie of 'The Call of Cthulhu' using only techniques that were available in the 20's (including it being a silent movie). I have to admit to having a soft spot for it.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
