Is black-and-white back? 

This year has seen so many black-and-white films, it’s like the old technique has become a new trend. “The reality of making a black-and-white film,” says Greta Gerwig, the star and co-writer of Frances Ha, “is that someone might buy it to distribute it after it was made, but no one would go tell you to make a black-and-white movie with their money.”
Studio 360 explores the resurgence with the filmmakers of Frances Ha, Much Ado About Nothing, and Nebraska:

Joan Crawford’s famous Charleston kick as captured in the year 1926. 
Joan came to Hollywood in 1925 as a hard-knock Broadway chorus girl without censorship. She was a mascot of such favorite venues as the Cocoanut Grove and the Montmartre, where she would easily devastate her competition in countless Charleston contests. She collected more champion trophies than she knew what to do with. 
Her vigorous Charleston became legendary as astonishingly early as 1930. When the age of the flapper buckled to patronizing reconsideration, Joan and her verve remained substantial in the nostalgia for a lost era. “Remember when Joan Crawford was a ‘hotcha’ baby tearing up the floor at the Grove?” sighed fan magazines, newspaper columnists, writers, actors, directors, producers, crew members, and wistful fellow Jazz Age symbols. 
A rare exception in the Hollywood practice of impermanence, the memory of Joan as scalding “hey-hey” flapper of the Roaring Twenties never disappeared from the foreground. The beloved Crawford Charleston—breathless, stomping, panting, kicking, sweating, grinning, electrifying—has endured the restless American cultures of nearly nine decades. To this day it continues as an indestructible icon belling the legend of 1920s youth.
