Greetings CMH Fans and Followers! 

We had so much fun last year – and are truly grateful that you all took the time to read and comment on our Contributor posts – that we’ve decided to do it again!

That said, to show our appreciation to our CMH fans and followers — and to celebrate our columnists who take the time to pen such wonderful articles for us — we’re launching the 2nd Annual “Give a Gift, Get a Gift” Holiday Giveaway…

Here’s how the giveaway works:

Over the past two years, we added a variety of monthly CMH columns, each with a niche classic film theme, authored by some of the best writers in the classic film community. To better acquaint you with these fabulous writers and to show them some fan love in return, this contest asks you to read as many of these featured posts as you desire (listed below) and leave a comment of feedback for each of those you’ve read. For every comment submitted, you get an entry into our contest. The more comments you give, the more chances you have to win! And – for those of you that already commented on some of these posts earlier in the year, no problem, just comment again, and each new comment will count toward your entries.

We call the contest Give a Gift, Get a Gift… The gift you’re giving is the gift of time by reading and commenting on the post(s)… The gift you’re getting is an entry (or entries) into the contest… As for me, to show my appreciation for your participation, I have tried to put together some nice prize packages — and all of the DVDs have been purchased by me (they were not supplied by any outside company)…

The weekly and Grand Prize drawings:

The contest will run from now through December 29, 2018, 8PM EST. In order to qualify to win one of these prizes via this contest giveaway, you must read and comment on as many of the featured posts as you want (links below). For each comment submitted, you will gain one entry into the contest. However, the sooner you get started, the more chances you will have to win – because in addition to the Grand Prizes awarded at the end of the contest, we will also be giving away one DVD a week (as listed below). And, if you win a DVD during one of the weekly drawings, you are STILL ELIGIBLE to win one of the Grand or Runner Up Prizes at the end of the contest! United States (all 50 states) and Canadian residents are eligible this time. All prizes will be awarded via random drawings. Prizes will be shipped to our winners in mid-January.

Bonanza Christmas CMH holiday contest


Last but not least, the Rules:

  • Contest will run from Dec 2, 2018 to Dec 29, 2018 at 8pm EST.
  • Limited to United States (yes, all 50 states can enter this time!) and Canadian residents only.
  • Every time you read a column article (from the list above) and leave an eligible feedback comment, you will receive one entry into the Contest.
  • Only one comment per post/article during the contest period is counted as an entry. If you already commented on a post/article at some point earlier in the year (aka before the contest start date of Dec 2, 2018, you can still post a comment during the contest period of Dec 2 through Dec 29 and it will be counted as a new/eligible entry)
  • Each comment must be positive, and must be more detailed than simply “great post!” Some good examples:
    • “Karen, I really enjoyed learning about the noir gem, WICKED WOMAN. Who knew the writing/directing duo behind that film created the story of Doris Day/Rock Hudson classic PILLOW TALK?? Thanks for teaching me something new about classic film!”
    • “Ron, I never thought about how early talkies would completely change movie concessions. That was a fascinating perspective. Thanks!”
  • Yes, you can win the weekly DVD giveaway, and still be eligible to win a Grand Prize or Runner Up Prize package.
  • Spammers (i.e. using bots to make generic comments) are ineligible.
  • Updates will be posted on CMH social media channels on a regular basis.
  • Each winner will be notified by email and/or Twitter and will have 48 hours to respond with their shipping information or a new winner may be chosen. If any Prize or Prize notification is returned as undeliverable, the winner may be disqualified, and an alternate winner may be selected.
  • Prizes will ship after the contest period is over. Please allow up to 2 to 4 weeks for prize delivery. Classic Movie Hub is not responsible for prizes lost or stolen.
  • Family of Classic Movie Hub is not eligible for entry……

The more feedback comments you give, the more chances to win. See? Give a Gift, Get a Gift! We hope you enjoy participating in our Holiday Contest to honor this season for giving.

A Big Thank your for participating! And a Happy and Healthy Holidays to All,

–Annmarie Gatti for Classic Movie Hub

    Wow, I Love Funny Face as I have most of the others.
    Fred Astaire playing the older Fashion Photographer taking young Ingenue Audrey Hepburn from Bookstore Associate to The World of Runway Fashion in Paris. Sprinkle in Gershwin Tunes and Givenchy Fashions and Beauty of Paris in Color and Fred’s Timeless Dancing and you have a memorable film.
    I have seen this film many times. It is a Classic Film. Audrey was still at the beginning of her career and Fred’s was in his last decade. I would Love to win it.
