What If...

Ever wondered what some of the most popular movies of this day and age would be like if they had been made during the Hollywood of yesteryear?

Well, wonder no more! Think back and you'll remember...

Remember the thrills and adventure of the 1951 version of Raiders of the Lost Ark




Recall how much you laughed when you saw the 1954 version of Ghostbusters



And how could you forget James Stewart's memorable and heartfelt 1949 performance in the inspirational story of Forrest Gump? Here's a reminder!




I think these clips are very impressive! It's a blast recalling all the source material used in these trailers! Check out more of YouTube member whoiseyevan's stuff HERE! Found via Metafilter!

I hope you enjoyed them! Have a good weekend folks!

What a treat! What a TRIP!!! Thanks, Joe!

(I think my favorite clip was, "Are you a god?" in the faux "Ghost Busters" trailer, but Anthony Quinn as Sallah in "Raiders" was a trip, too. So was Brando, in "Gump." I am having great fun trying to identify all the movies that the clips "borrowed" from, too!)
