This Thursday, April 16th, MGM will be celebrating their 85th Anniversary.
Two weeks ago, The Pictorial announced its Thanks For The Memories, MGM contest to commemorate this landmark in our cumulative cinematic heritage. How it works: select any one film from the MGM library and, in 200 words or less, tell us what makes it so darn special. Whether it be a special childhood memory, a life-changing landmark film or your first ever date-movie—we want to know!
All submissions will be posted for the benefit of your fellow Pictorial readers. The winning entry will receive a free copy of Mark Vieira’s stunning new book Hollywood Dreams Made Real: Irving Thalberg and the Rise of M-G-M. This exquisite book is a breathtaking visual history of the MGM factory and its boy wonder, Irving Thalberg. As illustrated histories go, this is truly a movie-lovers dream come true.
We have now extended the deadline to this Sunday, April 19th!
Winners will be notified April 20, 2009.
