1963

John Wayne was not only King of the Western but also King of the Comedy Western when the need arose. McLintock! may be one of the best in that regard, but if you watch the trailer, it seems like the entire movie is about people sliding down a hill into a pile of watery mud. But this is far more than just a big brawl in a muddy hole. This film is actually a kind of remake of “Taming of the Shrew” which sees Wayne going toe to toe with Maureen O’Hara for the fourth time in their acting career. The Quiet Man might be their most famous work together, but this is probably their funniest. Plus, yeah, there’s a big fight in a pile of mud. And it’s pretty awesome.

There are some bold claims going on in this trailer. Namely, that anyone who’s ever been funny is in the movie. Plus, the phrases, “whamdoodle,” “humdinger,” and “stem winder,” are involved. Like most of the movie, I have no idea what they mean. It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World really did feature a metric ton of comedic talent including Milton Berle, Sid Caesar, Spencer Tracy, Buddy Hackett, Ethel Merman, Mickey Rooney, Phil Silvers, Edie Adams, Jonathan Winters and more cameos than The Hangover can shake a stick at. It was an adventure of a lifetime that was essentially remade as Rat Race years later, but the original is still the best.

Every day, come rain or shine or internet tubes breaking, Film School Rejects showcases a trailer from the past. Sure, the movie needs no introduction now. It’s a classic. But what about in 1963 when it had to introduce itself to audiences? How did it sell its story then? Simple. By showcasing the ridiculous list of acting talent that it had lined up from Steve McQueen to Charles Bronson. Give it some tension, some excitement, and parade a bunch of big stars in front of the firing squad, and you’ve got yourself one hell of a picture (and one hell of a trailer). Check out the trailer for yourself:

Every day, come rain or shine or internet tubes breaking, Film School Rejects showcases a trailer from the past. This trailer shuns speaking and delivers instead an array of images meant to confuse and tantalize. It’s luxuriousness in movie form, crafted as only the Italians of the 1960s knew how. A director struggles with his latest film and must find solace and discomfort in his own memories before he can get everything absolutely right. It’s madness. Think you know what it is? Check out the trailer after the jump.

Everyday, come rain or shine or internet tubes breaking, Film School Rejects showcases a trailer from the past. Today’s trailer is a re-issue from the 1980s for a movie made way back in 1963 that told the true story of King Arthur and Merlin. Fortunately, it comes with a bonus commercial for a yellow cartoon bear that loves to eat honey and forget things. Think you know what it is? Check out the trailer after the jump.
