Classic Trailer Theater: Casablanca
We know Casablanca as one of the most beloved movies of all time, but in 1942, Warner Brothers only knew the film as a programmer with a good cast. The trailer for Casablanca looks like most of the ones I've seen from this period, particularly in the wipes department: old studio trailers are always cut together with wipes. I wonder if this was as much a technical choice as it was a stylistic one having to do with the nature of making these things out of film instead of digital copies. That is pure conjecture on my part though, and a potential future research topic for you scholars out there.
