    WHICH "original black and white film?"

    re: your update - I agree that it has been called that.

    I believe that several better ones have been made in the intervening decades.

    "Greatest" is an entirely subjective opinion of each viewer.  Everybody has their own opinion of what the greatest movie of any genre happens to be.  Some may agree with your choice, and many would disagree.  There's no right or wrong opinion there.

    The first black & white Move some claim. 5 minutes of standing on a street corner in France. I would call interesting but not Sci-Fi.  It did show you could make a clear move of unmoving persons & things. & also the blur of people walking { speed} & the more blur of carrage's moving at greater speed. So they could calculate film speed needed & exposure to make moves. As followed.

    No. "Forbidden Planet" is the better movie in my opinion. I have nothing against black & white movies. But it's just a cooler movie.

    'Twas a great film, for sure. But Metropolis (made in 1927) is stronger. And so is "Invasion of the Body Snatchers" (1956)
