Old Hollywood movie trailers seduction

Movie trailers: where would we be without them.
They seduce you to go the theater (or spend time behind your laptop) and leave you with satisfaction, because you liked the full movie and not just the 3 minutes trailer that you’ve watched before.
Or…
They seduce you to go to the theater while afterwards leave you wondering why you did not spend your money on…oriental spices and some chocolate for example, because the trailer included the best moments of the movie.
One way or another trailers have always been an important promotion channel. Nowadays for the amazing special effects and in the old days for that good old Hollywood glamour. Today I am showing some movie trailers of a few “mustsee” Old Hollywood movies. Keep in mind that ofcourse in those days laptops, tablets and watching movies online were soooo not 20th century.

Old Hollywood movie quotes to remember

Today I was scrolling through my old Hollywood movie quotes memory. When you read some movie dialogue transcripts, you realise that you don’t always have to watch the movie to relate to the situation or put it in perspective.

Whatever happens,

Like artists of today are inspired by artists of the 1980s, artists of the 1980s were inspired by old Hollywood movies of the golden Hollywood era (1930s-1950s).
A few videoclips and their old Hollywood inspiration resource…
1. Band Wagon – Girl Hunt, 1953 | Michael Jackson – Smooth Criminal, 1988
My favorite. A lot of similarities but at the same time both videoclips have a personal twist. Same outfit, same atmosphere, very different dance style in two different era.
