Question Black and White Movies

We've grown so accustomed to movies being in color, it's startling when we see one in black and white. It got me to thinking (a dangerous thing).....what are some of the best B & W movies you have seen? Here's my list:

Casablanca
Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?
To Kill a Mockingbird
Inherit the Wind
Twelve Angry Men
It's a Wonderful Life

I'd hate to see these "colorized".

Some of mine (a few of which have already been mentioned) include:

Back To Bataan
Battleground
D-Day
From Here To Eternity
Key Largo
Thirty-Nine Steps
Thunder Road
Young Frankenstein

And I'm sure more than several "Hey I forgot that one"s as this thread progresses.
