How Did They Ever Make a Movie of the Vintage Trailer of the Day?

Every day, come rain or shine or internet tubes breaking, Film School Rejects showcases a trailer from the past.

I love this trailer because it’s so care-free and silly, while the movie is dark and satirical and possibly exploitative. Of course, the bulk of this teaser is simply each character calling out a very special name.

James Mason stars as an older man drawn in by the newly-grown charms of the title character and her ability to enjoy a lollipop. It’s unclear how they ever made a movie of this literary classic, but Stanley Kubrick sure as hell nailed it.
