Giveaway: #TheHelp Movie Premier Prize Pack

The Nine Days ended just in time for the movie premier tonight of The Help!

I am personally so excited to see this movie, which is based on the #1 New York Times best-selling phenomenon about three women who strike up an unlikely friendship in 1950s and shatter a southern town’s unspoken code of behavior. (In fact, I’m excited enough that I may even splurge for a babysitter and drag DH to it this week!)

If you are also looking forward to this movie, then I have a fun little giveaway for you courtesy of Disney & Dreamworks Pictures.

One lucky KOAB reader will win a The Help Movie prize pack, which includes a The Help t-shirt in adult female sizes of S, M, L or XL + a pocket jotter & pen, fan and nail file/mirror set.

  39. Since my two favorites, Gone with the Wind and 1776, have already been taken, I will say An Affair to Remember. It takes place in 1950s NY and is fascinating from a sociological perspective. (Also, it’s a great movie.)

  41. My wife and I read the book, and would love to see the movie!

    The Help gets is my current favorite period movie. I was lucky enough to see a free preview last week with my daughter. Today I finally worked my way to the top of the wait list at the library for the audio version so that is next. If you liked the book, I am confident you will enjoy the movie.

  45. My favorite period movie is Gone With The Wind.

  46. How about “The Frisco Kid”? It’s been a while since I watched that one, actually

  47. Karen Smith says

    Definitely Frisco Kid. We still quote it all the time. “That’s some kinda Toyrah!”

  48. For me it would have to be Casablanca, followed by Forrest Gump, and the The Frisco Kid…

  49. Charna Schubert says

    It is an amazing book and an amazing movie!

  50. Since I grew up in Atlanta and because a dear friend’s relative produced it….Gone With the Wind.
