My only quibble is that it's more 40s than 50s...if not 30s. Check out this trailer for Dracula, from 1931.

And just for a taste treat, check out this trailer for Citizen Kane! Entirely overblown, egotistical, tasteless, and for all of that, hilarious, and almost entirely intentionally so on every front.

"We hope that it can be called a coming attraction. It's certainly coming."

Check out the gorgeous cinematography from Gregg well as the wobbly logo in the gate to open, which Welles was treating as retro way back in 1940.

So, as I said, a bit of a quibble about the LABEL of that Inception trailer...with another tip of the hat to the wonders and delights therein.
