OPENING SOON: Jonathan Last looks at the art of the movie trailer.

Last doesn’t mention it, but my favorite trailer is the one that Welles narrated for Citizen Kane, where he uses his most ingratiating voice-over style to introduce his cast of then-unknowns. It’s included on the DVD, and as RKO’s advertising men said of the film, it’s terrific.
