Every day, come rain or shine or internet tubes breaking, Film School Rejects showcases a trailer from the past.
This political thriller is so damned good that includes Frank Sinatra kung fu chopping, Janet Leigh wearing a giant playing card, and Angela Lansbury playing a total bitch.
Seriously. They turn the sweetest woman on the planet into a manipulative asshole, and it’s brilliant.
Plus, this trailer is classic in its invocation of the classic “Don’t miss the beginning of the film” command. Oddly enough, there’s zero dialogue here in the advertising, but it’s oddly effective. At least I want to go watch it right now.
