    I know about Apple..but the thing with that site is the trailers are of an inconsistant quality. Some VERY smooth and sharp..others all jittery and stuff. So I am looking for a site I can download trailers in a consistant high quality standard.

    As for Drive In Ads..the copyrights on these things MUST be moot. I mean, I see guys striking their own 16 and 35mm prints and selling'em openly. There MUST be a site to download these. I DO have the 2 Elite Drive In discs..but the ads are the same on both discs.

    Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    Actually, theatrical trailers and commercials were never copyrighted until the late 1980's, which means that they can be used and sold without getting permission. Whenever you watch the E! True Hollywood Story and they use clips from a trailer instead of clips from the actual movie, it's so they don't have to pay for them.

    Just so you know.

    Went to trailer world...the ones I wanted, when clicked..took me to the Apple site!

    As for the other links...nothing to download that I could find. I have this thing right now about collecting these. But I thank the above for your input.

    There are 2 good double-feature discs from Something Weird- one is The Defilers/Scum of the Earth and Just For The Hell of It/Blast-off Girls, which both have lots of great drive-in trailers in between the movies. I've checked out a couple of their other discs and they stamped the letters "SWV" onto the screen during the trailers, so stay away from those, but the 2 mentioned above are good.
