A short history of movie trailers

David Morgan has a story in CBS News, The Feed, about the evolution of movie trailers
Movie trailers got their name when they were originally shown after the feature ended. But theater owners soon discovered that when movies end, people LEAVE! So, trailers were moved to being shown BEFORE the main feature.

Here's a list of the film trailers featured:
The Sea Hawk, A Midsummer Night's Dream, Manhattan Melodrama,
    Footlight Parade, Lloyds of London, Destination Burma, Dive Bomber
