In the late 1950s, sumptuous black and white met CinemaScope, producing movies 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, these shimmering black and white beauties demand to be seen on the big screen. This series is a follow-up to March’s Black & White ’Scope: American Cinema.
