I'm sure Calum is very far from alone in that view - there aren't so many B&W films that I love more, though there are some. I have a feeling that across various countries, a high proportion of my favourites would be B&W. Old Hawks/Wilder/Ford etc., Renoir, '50s Kurosawa, mid-period Hitch, Preston Sturges, early Godard. I would guess that cinema history, maybe excluding India of which I know almost nothing cinematically, still has more B&W films in it that colour, so it shouldn't be surprising. And some made B&W willfully later - I love The Last Picture Show and Manhattan, for instance.

nineteen years pass...

I love this movie so much, but it just occurred to me that it's kind of a dick move on Rick's part to leave Sam with Ferrari and go off to be best bros with Claude Rains without so much as a goodbye.
