There was an interesting mixture of black and white and color in the
film "Zentropa," which came out in, I believe, 1990.  The
juxtaposition of the two media really created a spectacular effect.
I recommend it if you are really interested in the intermittent use
of color and black and white (although I recall that much of it was
in B&W).
