Contest: Five Classic Romantic DVDs for Your Valentine

posted by Nell Minow

Sharing a romantic movie with the one you love is one of life’s greatest pleasures. The fabulous Warner Archive has made more of their most beloved movies about romance available for the first time, including one of my all-time favorites, “The Enchanted Cottage” along with others featuring Cary Grant, Clark Gable, Bob Hope, Debbie Reynolds, and Jimmy Stewart. Here’s a clip from the sexy comedy “Sunday in New York,” starring Jane Fonda, Cliff Robertson, Rod Taylor, and Robert Culp.

And one of my lucky readers has a chance to win FIVE of them. All you need to do is visit the Warner Archive and pick the five titles you want. (If you need advice, ask me about the films with a comment below — I’ve seen almost all of them!) All titles on your list MUST be in the collection. Then send me the names of the five titles at moviemom@moviemom.com with WARNERS in the subject line. On February 15, I will pick one lucky winner at random. Good luck, and happy Valentine’s Day!

Switched at Birth and the End of Life
I'm a big fan of ABC Family's Switched at Birth and have appreciated its complicated characters, honest and heartfelt relationships, and compelling storylines, as well as its unprecedented, in-depth portrayal of the deaf community. Last week's episode may have been the all-time best (SPOILER ALERT)

It's here!  San Diego Comic-Con begins Wednesday night in San Diego and I'll be there.  This is my favorite event of the year, a chance to find out what everyone will be watching, listening to, playing, and otherwise enjoying over the next few years.  As I always say, this is the Iowa caucuses of
