Exposing Kids To Black And White Films

Jan 8, 2008
There are so many new and different kinds of movies that we watch today. We have so many different venues in which we can watch them. We can still go to the theatre and see them when they are first shown. We can wait until they come out on video and rent a copy at the local video store. We can rent a viewing for our television through our satellite, cable, or even our computer or telephone. It is all so amazing.

Even with all these options available to us, still one of the best ways to see an older movie is to simply catch it playing on television on one of the movie channels like Turner Classic Movies. This is one of the best channels to watch if you are an old movie buff. Of course there are other channels like the Family Channel and others that show plenty of old movies too.

The way that movies are made today is so much different than yester years. Kids today barely even know what a black and white movie is. If you ask my grand daughter, who is six, she would tell you that they are also grey. I ask her what she meant and she explained to me that those old movies were also grey. An amazing observation, why were they not ever called black, white, and grey movies?

The movie making special effects combined with all the computerized and digital technologies that is used to make them now is wonderful. It is easy to understand why kids might think watching the old classics a little boring. The new visual effects are so mesmerizing, but when you are watching a grand old classic like The Grapes of Wrath, is it any better or is it just different?

It is very important that young people do not miss seeing some of the great black, white, and grey films of the past. There is so much to be learned from some of them. Movies like To Kill a Mockingbird depicts an era gone by and the innocence of kids in that time. The Wizard of OZ is one of the greatest films ever made for kids and it is great in the color version, but many older people prefer the original black, white, and grey version.

The next time you have a Saturday or Sunday afternoon free, try to get your kids to sit down and watch whatever classic black and white film that might be on television. You will probably not have to worry about inappropriate language or content, and perhaps you can introduce them to an era of film making that no one should miss being exposed to.
