* During the Season 3 ReunionEpisode of ''Series/RuPaulsDragRace'', contestant [[DragQueen Detox]] showed up painted completely monochromatic, looking like she had literally just stepped out of a 1950's film. Later in Season 8, a runway challenge hearkened by to Detox's reunion look by having all of the contestants provide their own black and white movie look.

* There's a neat use of this in an obscure UsefulNotes/{{P|layStation2}}S2 game called ''VideoGame/BloodWillTell'' from Sega. Set in medieval Japan, the player's character had most of his body parts stolen by demons as a baby (then replaced with magical substitutes by a friendly wizard), so the main quest involves tracking down those demons and defeating them to get your real body back a piece at a time. The first couple of levels are in Black and White, but after an hour or two of gameplay you get to fight and kill the demon who had taken your eyes. At that point you get your "real" eyes back, and the game switches to glorious color. It's a surprisingly effective moment.

* The "Black & Chrome Edition" of ''Film/MadMaxFuryRoad'' is a director's cut of sorts, identical to the theatrical version except it's completely B&W and has no sound except for the musical score. Creator/GeorgeMiller had wanted to release a Mad Max film this way ever since viewing a silent, B&W print of ''Film/MadMax2TheRoadWarrior'' created for sound mixing purposes and finding it more "visceral" than the version the studio would let him release.

* Canadian filmmaker Creator/GuyMaddin (''Tales from the Gimli Hospital'', ''Film/TheSaddestMusicInTheWorld'' and ''Film/BrandUponTheBrain'') uses a mixture of black and white, film tinting, and individual scenes done in two-strip color to invoke the vintage look of silent and early sound films.



* Most Creator/GuyMaddin's films are shot in black and white, mimicking the vintage film style, like '#Film/TheSaddestMusicInTheWorld'' and ''Film/BrandUponTheBrain''.
