We continue our celebration of TCM’s 31 Days of Oscar, which features 360 Academy Award-nominated and winning movies, all presented uncut and commercial-free. Have a look here for the upcoming schedule of celebratory films.
As mentioned last week, Turner Classic Movies, is providing three DVDs for us to give away here on Another Old Movie Blog. We’re calling this: The Another Old Movie Blog Princess Prize Pack:
“Roman Holiday” (1953), in which Audrey Hepburn won Best Actress for her role as a runaway princess. We discussed “Roman Holiday” here in The 1950s Princess - Part 1.
“Anastasia” (1956), in which Ingrid Bergman won Best Actress for her role as an exiled princess. Maybe. We discussed “Anastasia” here in The 1950s Princess - Part 3.
“The Country Girl” (1954), in which Grace Kelly won Best Actress for her role as a longsuffering wife of an alcoholic actor. She doesn’t play a princess in this, but since she became a princess in real life, it still counts. We didn’t discuss this one yet. We will, I promise. We discussed instead Grace Kelly’s performance as a princess in search of a prince in “The Swan” (1955) here in The 1950s Princess - Part 2. Also good.
1. Brush your teeth.
2. Clean your room.

Oh, wait. Those are the wrong rules. (Searches file cabinet drawer for the right folder. )
Here were are. It was misfiled.
Leave a comment on this post telling me you want to enter the contest.
Hmm. That seems to be it. I wonder why I filed this under “K to L”?
Come back Thursday when we’ll pick the winner, which will be posted on this blog 1 p.m. Eastern Time. You have until then to enter.
Good luck. Brush your teeth anyway.
And in the meantime, keep a close watch on Turner Classic Movies and the 31 Days of Oscar.
