Win a copies of Spring and Port Wine on DVD

Spring

Over at our Cinedelica site, we have just reviewed the DVD reissue of Spring and Port Wine. But not content with that, we're also giving away five copies of this kitchensink classic.

If you've not seen the movie before, you might not know it was written by Bill Naughton (who was also responsible for Alfie and The Family Way) and set in Bolton in the late 60s. Essentially it's the tale of the Crompton family, headed up by Rafe (James Mason), an old-fashioned father with old-fashioned values. But when his teenage family start to question those values, it threatens to split the family apart.

A movie every fan of classic British cinema should see, you can get your name in the draw to win one over at our Modculture site. Good luck!

David Bailey on Warhol DVD competition

Bailey

We featured this last week and now we are offering three copies of the David Bailey on Warhol DVD as prizes in our latest competition.

If you missed it, this is the 1973 documentary Bailey did on Warhol, exploring his art work and film works, throwing in candid discussions revolving around sexuality, Warhol’s life at The Factory and his experience of being shot. It was banned initially, but did eventually get a showing after a high profile legal case.

The DVD, which also features documentaries on Cecil Beaton and Luchino Visconti, is available from 18th January 2010 or you can try and win one now in our competition, which is hosted on our Modculture site. Good luck!

Win £225 to spend on clothing at John Smedley

Smedley

With temperatures dropping almost daily (at least, in the UK they are), we have the perfect competition - to win £225 to spend at the John Smedley online store.

Yes, in conjunction with our favourite knitwear maker (and one of Modculture's top five modern-day mod labels), we are giving away £225 to spend on anything in the Smedley store, from classic knits to shirts, trousers, underwear and accessories for men or women. How good is that?

The £225 is no random number, its to celebrate 225 years of the company, which is still making its celebrated knitwear where it all began - at Lea Mills, in Matlock, Derbyshire. The competition is only running for a couple of weeks, so get your entry in as soon as you can at the competition page over on our Modculture site. Good luck!

Win The Avengers Series One and Two DVD boxset

Avengers

As we reported earlier, not everything has survived, but the remaining episodes of the first series of The Avengers, along with the second series, have been reissued on an eight-disc DVD boxset, courtesy of Optimum - and we have one of these superb boxes to give away.

Just two and a half first series episodes survive, but thankfully all of series 2 is still around, all fully restored (for the first time) and of course with Patrick Macnee playing Steed, Honor Blackman doing the partner thing as Catherine/Cathy Gale. The entire eight-disc set has a running time of 1,520 minutes, augmented by extras including a 132-page book covering series one, a series one scrapbook, scripts, materials, stills, promotional brochures, audio commentaries and an Honor Blackman interview - most of that new for this release.

It's available from this week (5th October 2009) and priced around £79.99, but if you want one for nothing, we have a box to give away. Just follow the link to the competiton page on our Modculture site.

Win Cadillac Records on DVD!

Cadillac_sleeve

Just out on DVD and Blu-ray this week, Cadillac Records is the tale of the iconic Chess Records label - and we have five copies of the DVD to give away in our latest competition.

If you missed it at the cinema, Cadillac Records is Hollywood's take on the rise of the Chess label, created just after the Second World War in Chicago by Leonard Chess (Adrien Brody) to promote young black performers, primarily from the South of the US. That means a host of blues and soul icons being taken off by modern-day actors and performers - including Muddy Waters (Jeffrey Wright), Howlin' Wolf (Eamonn Walker), Chuck Berry (Mos Def) and Etta James (Beyoncé Knowles). That title? Well, Chess had a habit of giving his performers a Cadillac to celebrate their first record.

Cadillac Records is available right now, with both the DVD and Blu-ray disc packed full of extras, deleted scenes and background documentaries. But if you want to save some cash, you can enter our competition to win one, hosted over on our Modculture site. Just follow the link to the entry page. Good luck!
