Just mulling over a pint of the quare stuff with a buddy. The conversation got around to trailers! He brought up the subject as follows: "What trailer, sold you a movie, you went to see it, and it turned out that the trailer was better than the movie?" In his opinion the worst culprit was "THE BETSY". The cast of this "masterpiece" was LAURENCE OLIVIER, ROBERT DUVALL, TOMMY LEE JONES, KATHERINE ROSS, JOSEPH WISEMAN....etc.
I had to think long and hard because I've seen so many movies where the trailer was better. But this one has always stuck in my mind: "MACKENNAS GOLD"! The trailer was STUNNING!!! A rootin', tootin' way out west western starring PECK, ELI WALLACH, EDWARD G. ROBINSON, KEENAN WYNN, LEE J. COBB....and not forgetting, TELLY SAVALAS, OMAR SHARIF, BURGESS MEREDITH and.....JULIE NEWMAR swimming in the nip!
Ah, has so much promise ever led to so much disapointment!!!

Anybody got a "FAV" trailer that was better than the movie. :o
