As a child I thought that black and white movies were black and white because the world was black and white. this, to me, explained why black people were called black people, when all the ones i had seen were actually brown.
i thought this until i was about eleven when i asked my dad if he was excited when color was "invented." at first he assumed I meant just movies, but then i began to ask him things like "how did you know how to pick your favorite ice cream?" actually, he never mentioned it to anybody after he explained. he probably decided that everyone thought i was crazy enough without that.
When i was little I saw old movies in black and white,and though in the time those movies were made real life was acually black and white
I once asked my Grandmother if the world used to be in black and white because all of the older television shows were in b/w.
I had a friend who was looking through some old photos from the 40's and 50's with her mom. in a very profound sort of way she said, "Mom, what was it like when color came into the world?! It must have been amazing!" (she was about 12 at the time) Up until that time she had apparently been convinced that old photos and tv shows were in black and white because the entire world looked that way.
When I was very young, I used to believe that before they invented color tv the world was black and white - and once they invented it things magically turned to color. I think I got that idea after seeing the wizard of oz.
when i was little, i saw a few whitw and black photos for the 40's. after that, i used to think that people, places, everything was white and black and that there was no colour until just before i was born.
When i was about 5 my mum thought it would be funny to tell me that the world used to be black and white. What did i know i wasn't back there then and everyone told me about black and white T.V's. It took me aqbout a year to figure out she was lying but she still tortures me about it to this day!
When I was little I thought that since old TV shows were black and white, that's what life really looked like back then. Sometime in the late 60s, everything in life gradually transitioned from black and white to color.
When i was a kid in the 70s and i saw black and white tv shows and films, i honestly thought that the world was black and white till at least the 1960s!!!!
As a child, I used to believe that at the time of Black and White films, everything was black and white outside and when I was born I brought color. It took me a while to realise when my dad said "You brange life into color" He didn't mean it literally.
that before there was color t.v. everyone thing was black and white
When I was little, I used to watch old black-and-white TV with my mom, and I thought that ife was in black and white back when those shows were made ;)
I used to think the world was black and white. I thought black and white movies had no color because no one had invented color and everything existed in shades of gray. I was really glad they had invented color before I was born so I could eat a red apple and lay on green grass.
I used to think when looking at old black and white photos that everything was actually black and white and colour was only invented when colour photos came around (Stupid i know, but hey, i was a kid!)
Whilst on my paper round I suddenly realised that the world around me had in fact always been in colour. Up to that point i'd always believed that the past was in black and white (probably due to black and white tv viewing and old photos)
When I was a child I believed that back in the time when they had black and white photos that the world was black and white.
When I was much smaller, I would look at old pictures that my parents had around the house (the ones with "sepia" tones). I used to think that's what the world looked like back in the old days. How boring!
I used to believe up until about the age of 10 that in the past the world was in black and white, because of black and white films.
I used to believe that the early days of the twentieth century actually were in black and white--because the photos were! I also used to believe that if you turned on an antique radio, you would hear music from that era.
When I was growing up, all the home movies were black and white and all good theatre movies were black and white. I thought that before the 1950's everyone was black and white
