We're all used to going to the theater and seeing previews of coming attractions before the feature. They're still known as trailers. But, what most movie-goers don't realize, this is a hold over from the days when previews were actually shown at the end of the feature.

Probably not of much interest to the average viewer.
This documentary consists of a couple film historians/preservationists showing clips of surviving footage from missing films. They are almost exclusively silent movies and the fragments are probably mostly of interest to HUGE silent film buffs and historians. However, other folks will not only find the clips of dubious value but the delivery of the hosts is about as dull and lifeless as humanly possible. Any interest and excitement they have about the subject matter is totally lost and this makes the documentary a lot more tedious than it needs to be. There were also a few interviews and the one with Baby Peggy was exceptionally interesting--one of the few highlights of this film shown on Turner Classic Movies.
