Amelia on DVD Giveaway

The people at 20th Century Fox sent me a copy of their new DVD release Amelia last week. Which worked out really well, because I've had a really nasty cold and it was nice to lie in bed and watch a good movie.

I really enjoyed the film, as well as the bonus features. My favorite bonus feature was definitely the original news reel footage of Amelia. There were also quite a few deleted scenes, which were interesting to get a little more of the backstory.

On a personal note. My grandmother once worked as a secretary for an evening at the Ambassador Hotel for Amelia, her husband, and a friend of theirs in the late 20's. She had nothing but glowing things to say about Amelia, maybe because they were both from Kansas, or maybe because Amelia paid her $20 buck and cab fare. Either way she loved Amelia.

20th Century Fox has also offered to give 3 copies of the film to my readers so if you would like one please leave a comment, make sure to leave contact info. (if you have a blogger acct and are set on private, leave an email). Entrants must be in the contiguous US.

I'll announce winners on Tuesday. Good Luck!

THE WINNERS!!!!!!!!!!
Krista, Amy, and Mami2jcn

I admired Amelia Earhart as a kid because she was an independent women. I'm looking forward to seeing the movie. kimstoys at gmail dot com

I really wanted to see this movie, but my hubby didn't, so I would love to win! I also think my oldest daughter might like to see some of it. She is very interested in Amelia Earhart.

I hope it's not too late to enter! I think Hilary Swank is an incredible actress, and Richard Gere is no slouch either.
