How to Make a Movie Trailer

This has to be one of the better classic movie trailers I've run into. It certainly earns an "A" for creativity. In this trailer for 1937's Live, Love and Learn, the glamorous Robert Benchley walks us through the finer points of editing and finding good scenes, plus the marketing angles, of creating a movie trailer.

One can never go wrong with lines like: "This here is Celluloid, the second cousin of Harold Lloyd."
