    My collection of about 380 DVD's is made up of 25% black and white fims. I love these - some of the best of them (CITIZEN KANE; LAST PICTURE SHOW; REBECCA, etc.) are to me more visually stimulating and atmospheric than nearly any color DVD I own.

    I love B&W movies (Especially nitrate prints on DVD!).

    22.14% of my DVD collection is in B&W.

    The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari (tinted and toned)

    All Quiet on the Western Front

    It Happened One Night

    All The World's A Stooge

    Flash Gordon: Space Soldiers

    Citizen Kane

    The Maltese Falcon

    Casablanca

    It's A Wonderful Life

    Arsenic and Old Lace

    Weird Al Yankovic: The Videos (4 of the music videos are B&W. This is that .2 percent.)

    I have 50 DVD's, so 10 plus 4/22 of a DVD is B&W which makes about 22.14%

    0% :b

    Unless I can count The Wizard of Oz or Memento.

    So 0 out of 83 are B&W.

    But I do plan on getting some soon!

    Out of 30 DVDs 0% are in black in White :b I'm only 16 so really the only movies I know are in color, therefore I don't really have any plans to get any black and white movies.

    42%. That number'll go up dramatically once Warners starts releasing more catalog titles.

    I really do appreciate Black and White photography (it is one of my hobbies). But, the percentage of DVD's that I have that a B&W is pretty darn small now that I think about it!

    9 out of 111, for a total of 8.1%

    Most of them are Kurosawa films, but I will definitely be adding the Hitchcock releases and a certain Coen Brothers film as soon as it is released.

    Probably around 20%. It'd be a lot more if I had the money to buy everything I wanted...
