DVD/Blu-Ray Giveaway, Winner’s Choice of 4 Classic Titles
Now it’s time for the Facebook/Blog version of our contest! That said, there’s still two more chances to win our Kino Lorber #Noirvember giveaway, courtesy of Kino Lorber. Each of our two winners will be able to choose one prize from the following four titles – A Bullet for Joey (Edward G. Robinson and George Raft), No Orchids for Miss Blandish (Jack La Rue, Hugh McDermott and Linden Travers), Daisy Kenyon (Joan Crawford, Dana Andrews and Henry Fonda) or A Kiss Before Dying (Robert Wagner, Jeffrey Hunter). And don’t forget – you can also enter the Twitter version of the contest for more changes to win because we’ll be giving away EIGHT prizes there too. That said, here we go…
In order to qualify to win a prize via this Facebook/Blog contest giveaway, you must complete the below entry task by Saturday, Dec 8 at 10PM EST. We will pick our two winners via a random drawing and announce them on this Blog the day after the contest ends (Sunday Dec 9).
Here are the titles up for grabs:
A Bullet for Joey: Blu-Ray or DVD available. Edward G. Robinson (Scarlet Street) and George Raft (They Drive by Night) star in this espionage thriller that pulls out all the stops for excitement and edge-of-your-seat suspense.
No Orchids for Miss Blandish: Blu-Ray or DVD available. Based on a shocking novel by James Hadley Chase (The Night of the Generals) – the film’s mixture of sex, violence and low morals made it one of the most controversial films of the late 1940s. The story tells of a pampered heiress (Linden Travers, The Lady Vanishes) who is abducted on her wedding night by a gang of small time hoods, in what starts out as a jewel robbery and turns into a kidnapping/murder when one of them kills the groom.
Daisy Kenyon: Blu-Ray ONLY available. Joan Crawford (Mildred Pierce), Dana Andrews (Boomerang) and Henry Fonda (The Ox-Bow Incident) deliver dazzling performances in this highly polished and slick love triangle directed by the great Otto Preminger (Laura). Daisy Kenyon (Crawford) is a lovelorn commercial artist caught in a romantic triangle with two men – one she loves but cannot have and one whose love she cannot return.
A Kiss Before Dying: Blu-Ray ONLY available. He had looks, charm, and killer instinct! Beneath his clean-cut looks… was a cold-blooded killer. Robert Wagner (Hart to Hart, The Pink Panther) gambled with his clean-cut image to play the ruthless, conniving killer in this unrelenting thriller co-starring Jeffrey Hunter (The Searchers), Virginia Leith (Fear and Desire), Joanne Woodward (Three Faces of Eve), Robert Quarry (Madhouse), George Macready (Gilda) and Mary Astor (The Hurricane). Based on the novel by suspense master Ira Levin (Rosemary’s Baby, The Stepford Wives).
