The History Of The Trailer

Movie trailers have been a part of the movie-going experience since almost the beginning of cinema itself. And as the art of movies has changed and evolved so has the art of the trailer. CBS News has put together a nice piece that gives a quick overview of the history of trailers that, while it may only scratch the surface, still serves as a good primer.

You can head over to CBS’s website for a list of all the trailers used in the piece, but before you do, challenge yourself to name as many as you can.
