Over the years it is these words and lines a film company hoped would attract people to go see their movies. Years ago big words were often used in genre films making you think you were seeing a epic. In recent years as the audiences have become more sophisticated less melodramatic ad lines are used. Often more simple ones that are more direct to the topic. As in other threads I have done, these are excerpts from my books. Feel free to add to these as I go along. A few years back it took a lot of old newspapers to get this big collection together. Hope you find it interesting. A piece of genre film history
