Hollywood star George Clooney had to fight to convince producers to fund his latest film GOOD NIGHT, AND GOOD LUCK, because they claimed audiences wouldn't pay to watch a black and white movie.

Director Clooney snubbed colour technology to create a vintage feel in the black and white drama, which is set during the anti-Communist witch hunts in 1950s America.

He explains, "People feel no one will watch a black and white film."
