Giveaway Drawing: Bombshell: The Hedy Lamarr Story (2017)

A few days ago I reviewed the excellent new documentary, BOMBSHELL: THE HEDY LAMARR STORY (2017).

Thanks to the folks at Kino Lorber, I have a Blu-ray copy of this very interesting film to give away to one lucky winner.

To enter, simply leave a comment below recommending your favorite Hedy Lamarr movie, or on the chance someone hasn't seen one of her films yet, instead mention the Lamarr title you'd most like to see -- other than BOMBSHELL, of course!

I'll be putting everyone's names in a bowl and drawing the winner in ten days, on Saturday, June 16th.

Be sure to calendar to check back here on that date for the name of the winner, who will need to email me a mailing address by clicking "Contact Me" on the upper left margin of this blog page. If I don't receive the winner's address by the end of the month, I'll draw another winner's name.

With apologies to my greatly appreciated readers in Canada, Europe, and beyond, this drawing is only open to residents of the continental U.S.

Good luck!

June 16th Update: Here's the announcement of the winner!

H.M.Pulham, Esq., a lovely movie about life's missed chances. Hedy was actually a great actress.

I’ve only seen her in SAMSON AND DELILAH and MY FAVORITE SPY, and I definitely prefer SPY.

My favorite was Samson and Delilah. I'm interested in seeing the movie she made The Three Queens.

The Heavenly Body (1944) gets my vote for a favourite Lamarr film. Hedy comes off as a bit of a bubble-head, but she has some great chemistry with William Powell, and the movie is buoyed up by character actors like Spring Byington.

I love so many of her films but Ziegfeld Girl was the first I saw her in. So lovely and brilliant!

Hi Laura, I have to catch up on my Hedy Lamarr movies. I did catch her in a classic "Boom Town" with Tracy and Gable. You have a great evening and catch up the musings on classic and any other movie that catches your fancy.

Lots of great entries over the last few days!! I'm partial to COME LIVE WITH ME -- a couple other favorite Hedy films haven't been mentioned yet -- we'll see if anyone mentions them this coming week! Looking forward to the drawing next weekend. Thank you one and all for participating!

Best wishes,

Oh that's so hard to choose! Hedy is a goddess after all. I have to say I have a soft spot for 'Her Highness and the Bellboy'. Some might consider it fluff, but it's just charming, sweet fun with the lovely June Allyson in the lead.

Amanda, I haven't see that one in years and I really need to pull my Warner Archive DVD off the shelf and see it. Great submission!

Best wishes,

“Come Live With Me” (1941) co starring Jimmy Stewart. Love the cross-stitch proverbs and the tease title! And who knew that a flashlight could be a romantic invitation? Still searching for a pink mirror...😉
