DVD giveaway Fool There Was, Beloved Rogue, Oyster Princess,

Unread post by Nazimovafan » Fri Oct 13, 2017 11:00 am

Over the last few years this site has enriched Mrs. Nazimovafan and myself. As a little 'thank you' to Nitrateville we are offering four silent DVDs (all from Kino) that we have factory sealed extras of, viz., A Fool There Was, the Oyster Princess, the Beloved Rogue and Keaton plus.

Post a message below and that message will get a number. At midnight Monday 16th October we will use the random number generator at random.org to pick the winner. That person then PMs us an address to ship them to and we will make it so. They are free, postage paid. (Thanks to D. Nemeth who inspired this idea).

Let the game begin!

How very generous of you!

Would it be violating the rules to say I already have The Oyster Princess, but the other titles interest me?

I have already seen the titles and so have no interest in applying for them, but I wish to applaud your generosity.


APPLAUSE

What a nice thought. Met a black cat on the way home, so that might help...

I might actually win, as I am both beloved (a total hottie), a rogue, and a fool (perpetually hopeful Democrat.) However, I'm vegetarian, so I would not be an Oyster Prince(ss) in any case.

Good Morning all,

The winner is ''earlytalkiebuffRob'. That black cat must have known I am an ailurophile and given you good luck!

Please p.m. us and we will get a small package of wonderful things sent yr. way.

Thanks all for playing and thank you too for the applause but it was unnecessary as I had already straightened my halo knowing full well my reward will come in heaven where I expect to slip on a sacred banana peel in the presence of the immortal Al St. John.

Many thanks for this. Next time I see 'Stumpy' (not his / her real name - he / she has quite a bit of tail gone west) I shall five him / her an extra chin-tickle. Of course my own cat Patchy probably helped, despite being black-and-white...
