screencapture from the film

Vivien-Leigh.com is announcing a Enter for Your Chance to Win Contest! V-L.com will be giving away 3 DVD copies of The Deep Blue Sea! Released in 1955, the film stars Vivien Leigh and Kenneth More. This color film was never released on VHS or DVD but played on American television a couple decades ago. I have in my possession a recording of that TV version so it borders on poor quality, but I have it nonetheless. The Deep Blue Sea is about Hester (Vivien Leigh) “the troubled wife of a London attorney (Emlyn Williams). Racked with emotional problems, Leigh turns her back on her loveless marriage and sets up house with a handsome RAF officer (Kenneth More). When her lover proves to be shallow and unreliable, Leigh attempts to kill herself ” (quoted text taken from Fandango.com).

To enter the contest, please answer the question below. One winner will be chosen at random from the correct submissions. This contest is only open to those living in the USA and Canada (sorry, the DVDs will only work in DVD players from this region). To enter for your chance to win, click on the email link below and send your answer in the email. Please put “Deep Blue Sea” in the subject line.  The contest ends March 31st! Good Luck, everyone!

QUESTION: The film The Deep Blue Sea is adapted from the play of what playwright? Hint: Answer can be found on Vivien-Leigh.com

Additional Information:

Ms. Witt’s website, www.KathyWitt.com, provides a teaser for this new book: “Lanie Sullivan and Belle Blakely never meet, but they share a fascination for all things Gone With the Wind—especially Belle Watling, a character in the book, and Ona Munson, the actress who portrays Belle in the movie. Lanie meets Ona in 1939, during the three-day movie premiere. When Lanie thwarts a thief in Ona’s hotel room, Ona rewards Lanie with a gift—a gift originally given to Ona by Gone With the Wind author Margaret Mitchell. More than sixty years later, as she helps prepare a museum dedicated to Gone With the Wind for its Grand Opening, Belle reads Lanie’s letters to Ona and is intrigued by Lanie’s references to the gift. Margaret Mitchell died in 1949; Ona Munson in 1955. What about Lanie? Belle begins a quest to discover what the gift was that connects the three women, where it is now—and what happened to Lanie Sullivan. . .”
