The Princess Bride! William Goldman's novel is one of few books I have actually planned to reread and actually did so! And the movie is one of my favourite movies of all time. As I have been seeing mentions of the book and movie around the blogosphere, I have wanted to either reread or rewatch the movie, but I have not had a chance to yet. I am lucky I have found the time to write this post. So, why am I posting? To talk about a very interesting contest!
In conjunction with the 20 th anniversary of The Princess Bride , MGM Home Entertainment is launched the “Ode To Princess Bride” Sweepstakes, an online contest that provides an “editor's tool kit” with video, audio and music from the film and allows fans to create their own “Ode to The Princess Bride” video trailer. The contest winners will be selected by Norman Lear and Rob Reiner. One grand prize winner will receive a state-of-the-art Panasonic Home Theater package and The Princess Bride script autographed by Rob Reiner and Norman Lear. For more information, please visit www.ThePrincessBride.com .Cool, huh? I am lucky I have time to myself at all lately, but if I did I would be entering for sure! Since I do not, everyone out there should join in! The prize is nice, wouldn't you say? Good luck to anyone that joins in!
Check out the DVD special features:
