When did films start putting credits at the end?

Ever notice how films from a few decades back (say, the early 70s and before) have all the credits before the film starts? And that newer films put all the credits at the end, except for maybe the title and the stars? When did that switch over start, who started it, and why? Obviously it looks better at the end cause we can all leave the theatre, but why was the decision suddenly made to switch it?
