Blog Anniversary Blu-ray Giveaway

This month I'm celebrating the 16th anniversary of Laura's Miscellaneous Musings!

I have an extra-special celebration for my readers this year. Thanks to our friends at Kino Lorber, I'm hosting a giveaway of several brand-new 2021 Blu-ray releases.

I'll be holding four separate drawings and will be randomly matching the four winners to one of the gifts below.

First up, one winner will receive a Cecil B. DeMille double feature consisting of FOUR FRIGHTENED PEOPLE (1934), starring Claudette Colbert and Herbert Marshall, and UNION PACIFIC (1939) starring Joel McCrea, Barbara Stanwyck, Robert Preston, and Brian Donlevy.

Next we have the delightful comedy NO TIME FOR LOVE (1943) starring Claudette Colbert and Fred MacMurray, directed by Mitchell Leisen.

Next up is the WWII spy thriller O.S.S. (1946) starring Alan Ladd and Geraldine Fitzgerald, directed by Irving Pichel.

Finally, a special edition of COOGAN'S BLUFF (1968), a Clint Eastwood film directed by Don Siegel, costarring Lee J. Cobb, with a terrific supporting cast.

For those who participated in my giveaway a few years ago, this will work the exact same way. To enter, please leave a comment below simply saying you'd like to be included in the drawing. Anyone whose Blogger comments post as "Anonymous" or "Unknown" needs to be sure to sign a name in your comment so that I can include you in the drawing.

On Saturday, August 7th, all the names will go on slips of paper in a bowl and I'll have a family member do the honors pulling out the winning slips. The winners will be announced in a new post here on the 7th; a link to the announcement will also be added to the bottom of this page.

Be sure to check back here for the names of the winners on August 7th. Winners will need to use the "Contact Me" button on the upper left portion of the page to send me their mailing addresses. If I don't hear from a winner by August 14th I'll draw a replacement name.

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

My deepest gratitude toward all my readers over the past 16 years for your friendship and support!

August 7th Update: The drawing winners have now been announced!

August 14th Update: I've drawn a backup winner for one of the discs.

Four Frightened People is an odd little movie. One of several odd little movies DeMille made around that time.

BTW I'm not in the US so I'm not asking to be in the draw. I just got excited by the mention of DeMille's most overlooked movie.
