Black and White Movies

Thinking back, movies before were limited when it comes to cinematography. Films didn't have much color and yet it was well-received. On the other hand, other elements were highly at play such as lighting and camera motions. Actors and actresses' roles were probably heavier too because they had to be expressive enough with their face and body to set the atmosphere effectively. What part of cinematography do you think has the most power to change an audience's perspective on a movie?

The role of the cast and how best they bring out the characters in the script. The audience is likely to remember an excellently-acted scene more than anything else. Where can I find some of the famous black and white movies?

It probably explains why it is now easier to get into the film industry as an actor or actress. Back then, you had to have specific attributes to be in a movie. Even with current technology, how the cast bring out the script will determine the audience's perspective.

I think more time was spent on focusing on the actors and actresses before transitioning to another scene since a particular atmosphere had to be created. Other than cinematography, black and white movies maximized the use of sounds.
