Behold some of the most stunningly photographed films of all time. In the late 1950s, sumptuous black and white met CinemaScope. The result was a cinematic era that married the dramatic chiaroscuro of monochrome with the expressive freedom of the widescreen frame. Lensed by some of film history’s most renowned cinematographers—James Wong Howe, Joseph LaShelle, and Gordon Willis, among others—these shimmering black-and-white beauties demand to be seen on the big screen.
