Better Before Technicolor
By Paisley Hibou
Oh, the good ol' days, when screenwriters actually wrote original scripts not based off of graphic novels and it would take an entire day to shoot a film scene. If you've memorized all the lines to “Casablanca” and wish you could fluff your hair like Bette Davis', you're probably not a huge fan of today's blockbusters. Here are 10 signs you should've been born in a black and white movie:
1. You'd choose Cary Grant over George Clooney any day.
2. Lauren Bacall is your style icon. Jennifer Aniston is not.
3. You've nailed down your Jimmy Stewart impression.
4. You regularly fantasize about driving a car older than your grandpa—especially if it looks like one Humphrey Bogart would drive.
5. You'd live inside the set of “To Kill a Mockingbird” if it weren't for the racial injustice.
6. When you're feeling self-pity, you remember your childhood as the one from “400 Blows.”
7. You don't really care that “The Wizard of Oz” was shot in Technicolor.
8. “Raging Bull” is your favorite Martin Scorsese film.
9. You're sad that the French New Wave is now...old.
10. You still and will always believe that “Breakfast at Tiffany's” was shot in black and white.
