Old School Fridays: Casablanca

It's that time again, time for another new edition of Old School Fridays! This Friday we're checking out the original theatrical trailer for the 1942 classic, Casablanca.

This trailer essentially tells you the whole movie in a nutshell, detailing some of the finer scenes of the movie, but in so doing they kind of give away crucial moments that could create some tension or genuine emotion upon first viewing. But I did love how cheesy this trailer was. Trailers from this period often utilized these awful, over-the-top voice-overs, along with adjective-filled-text, and really it just makes the film look like a cornballer fest, but then again nostalgic at the same time.

That does it for this Friday! Tune in next week for another exciting edition of Old School Fridays!
