Turner Classic Movies-31 Days of Oscar- Glory DVD Giveaway CLOSED


Tune into TCM for 31 days to watch your favorite award-winning and nominated movies, presented uncut and commercial free on TCM. CHECK OUT THE FULL SCHEDULE AT TCM.COM/31DAYS

Turner Classic Movies (TCM) is getting trivial with its annual 31 DAYS OF OSCAR® festival in February. The 2011 edition of the month-long event will feature more than 340 Academy Award®-nominated and winning movies, scheduled in trivia-inspired marathons. In addition, each night will feature a Best Picture Oscar winner at 10 p.m. (ET).

I know where to turn to for excellent TV watching this month! Turner Classic Movies is showing its 31 Days of Oscar again! They are showing some of my all time favorite movies! Casablanca, Forrest Gump, Lord of the Rings, Glory……the list goes on and on.

Glory will be shown February 8th.  This is one of my all time favorite movies!  The story of the 54th Massachusetts Black regiment is so moving and symbolizes what the Civil War was all about.  The acting in this movie is superb.  Denzel Washington, Morgan Freeman, and Matthew Broderick….it doesn’t get much better than this.  I was obsessed with this movie in high school.  (I was not your typical teenager) And I have also read One Gallant Rush the book that helped form the movie.  If you have not seen this movie- YOU SHOULD.  WATCH THIS NOW.  I am a former history teacher and as a teacher I am telling you, you need to see this movie:)

Glory is a 1989 American drama war film based on the 54th Massachusetts Volunteer Infantry, as told from the point of view of Colonel Robert Gould Shaw, its commanding officer during the American Civil War. The 54th regiment was one of the first formal units of the United States Army to be made up entirely of African American men. The film was produced by Freddie Fields and directed by Edward Zwick. The storyline was conceived from a screenplay written by Kevin Jarre, based on the personal letters of Colonel Shaw, and from a pair of novels; Lay This Laurel authored by Lincoln Kirstein and One Gallant Rush by Peter Burchard. Veteran actors Matthew Broderick, Denzel Washington, Cary Elwes and Morgan Freeman star in principal roles.

In celebration of 31 Days of Oscar TCM is giving one lucky Mama Report reader their OWN copy of Glory! And in keeping with the trivia portion of the marathon……
