    I love old film trailers, especially those from the '40s and '50s with their insistent voice-overs, in-your-face lettering and numerous optical effects. There used to be various classic trailer collections on VHS but I haven't seen any DVD collections. Does anyone know of any?

    Blood From The Mummy's Tomb from Anchor Bay had a limited release with a free Hammer Horror Trailer Collection DVD (as shown on this picture from Amazon) but I think that they may all have sold out now (Amazon no longer mentions the disc in the specs on the page).

    Very good it is too. [​IMG] Happy hunting!

    All of the SOMETHING WEIRD VIDEO discs from Image have quite a few trailers on them, from old exploitation films.

    "Casablanca" contains a stack of Humphrey Bogart trailers.

    "Outlaw Josie Wales" has an extensive assortment of Western Trailers.

    "The Thin Man" features trailers for the whole Thin Man series.

    Thanks for the tips guys. I've ordered the All Day film noir trailer collection which looks good.

    I recently saw a disc of 70's porn trailers 'taken from the original film elements'.

    You can still get Blood From The Mummys tomb from deepdiscountdvd.com with the extra disc full of Hammer trailers. I bought mine a few weeks ago.

    There's also Wild East's A FISTFUL OF TRAILERS, which is full of trailers of Spaghetti Westerns. A second edition is coming soon.

    Mildred Pierce has 9 of Joan Crawford's B&W film trailers mostly from the 40s-50s.
