Back in the day, from the 1930s through the 1950s, movies goers got to see two movies for the price of one, aka, the Double Feature. First, the theater would show the B-movie and then it would show the A-movie, which was the main feature. B-movies got their name because they were made with a lower budget, and featured lesser well known, or completely unknown actors and directors.
However, after the 1950s, Double Features proved to be less economical for theaters, so they were discontinued. So, from the 1960s until today, B-movies still mean the movie is cheaply made, and features lesser known or totally unknown actors and directors. And, like the B-movies from the Golden Age of Hollywood, they’re also a lot of fun to watch!
