Win a Copy of My New Book: 101 Must-See Movie Moments

posted by Nell Minow

My new book is out in paperback! 101 Must-See Movie Moments is available on Amazon for $12, but I have three autographed copies to give away.  It’s 101 brief essays on great moments in neglected movies (like “Miss Tatlock’s Millions,” “The April Fools,” and “Wives and Lovers,”) and neglected moments in classic movies, (like “Sounder,” “The Godfather,” “The Shining,” and “Top Gun”), plus the singing underpants in “The Tall Guy.”  Send me an email at moviemom@moviemom.com with 101 in the subject line and tell me one of your favorite movie moments.  Don’t forget your address!  (US addresses only.)   I’ll pick three winners at random on January 30.  Don’t forget, whether you win a copy or not — if you write a review on Amazon, I’ll send you a free ebook — either my 50 Must-See Movies: Weddings or 50 Must-See Movies: Mothers.
