B-Features were basically the second tier of movies that usually followed the Main Feature.
They were frequently as much, if not more, fun than the feature movie!
Maven remembers going to the theatre to see two 1962 pictures:
The Day of the Triffids and the main feature, Tarzan Goes to India.
The star of Tarzan . . . (Jock Mahoney) was making appearences to promote the movie.
Maven watches the Triffids when she can but can't remember the last time she saw that Tarzan movie!
 
Charlie Chan in London (1936) - (1:7) The second Chan film, with Warner Oland, that is stll available to fans.
 
Let's Get Started - (1:8) An introduction to the main feature:  Character Actors, From A to Z.
 
The Bat (1969)/The Invisible Man Returns (1949) - (1:3) Two Vincent Price Movies.
 
The Bern House - (1:5) - The wedding present from Paul Bern to Jean Harlow and later the place where he allegedly pilled himself.
 
A Day at the Races (1937) - 1:9 - Please don't ask what Maven was thinking when she put this main feature with the Marx Brothers in with the B-Featues.  She's hoping her brain was at least out doing charitable works!
