Melanie (LoveBeingVegan) | 5442 comments Wow, Aerykah! I don't think I've heard of any of those... I will have to check them out and see if my library has them. :)

My sis told me that she's found some b&w movies on netflix & youtube. I don't know about any of the ones I listed, but I thought I'd let you know what she said -- in case your library doesn't have them.
Do you like Alfred Hitchcock movies? I believe "Spellbound" (from my 1st list), "Shadow Of Doubt", & "Gaslight" are all Alfred Hitchcock films.

Melanie (LoveBeingVegan) | 5442 comments I can get some of the ones you listed from the library! :)

I've watched some Hitchcock films (including Psycho) and I liked them. :)

Thanks for letting me know about maybe being able to find them on youtube. :)

Aerykah | 1043 comments Awesome! Enjoy! :D

You're welcome. ;)
