Aforementioned Hitchcock/Jimmy Stewart trailer

Yesterday, in the trailer discussion, I mentioned an old Hitchcock/Jimmy Stewart trailer as representing the absolute worst of all pre-modern movie trailer conventions.

I went back and looked, and it’s not Rope; it’s The Man Who Knew Too Much (a far worse film; this is the one Hitchcock made twice, and didn’t quite get right either time). Anyway I posted it here so jpx and everyone can see it. Jpx, I know you’re AWOL but hopefully you’ll see this.
