If it's good enough for Margo Channing, it's fine for the blogathon, too. As I was informed by my For the Love of Film comrade Marilyn Ferdinand, late donations continued to flow this week. And as of today, the new total is (drum roll, please)
This will be enough money, according to our pals at the National Film Preservation Foundation, to restore a feature comedy AND a cartoon.
Do we of Greater Blogistan rock, or what?
But wait, there's more. Here is the list of the winners of the poster and DVD sets being given away in appreciation by the NFPF. The winners were selected in a random drawing from among the blogathon donors.
Eddie Selover – Poster
Samantha Kelley – Treasures III
James Wolcott – Treasures III
Gloria Porta – Treasures IV
Kenji Fujishima – Treasures IV
Congratulations to the lucky winners. And now, in the immortal lines from Ninotchka, "What's the hurry? Let us be happy...give us our moment...We are happy, aren't we?"
Kudos! One, and all!
We're in the money, we're in the money, we've got a lot of what it takes to get along!
Hi! Self-Style Siren and Marilyn,
Congratulation! to one and all that played a part in bringing attention to the The Film Preservation Foundation...and I hope that the donations continue to "roll" in...too!
Actually, I finally got my contribution post up, Better Late Than Never.
I'll add it to the links post, as well.
Huh... Is my luck changing? it's the first time ever I win something! (hope a job offer comes my way sometime soon: I'd like to be able to donate again as I feel the prize somehow invalidates my donation...)
We are indeed happy--and grateful to the blogathon's hosts!
But in view of that last still, I hope you've been staying away from balconies. And crowds...
Oooh! A cartoon, too?
(Harmonizing with Marilyn "...we never see a headline, 'bout a breadline today, and when we see the landlord, we can look that guy right in the eye..."
Take it, somebody.
I apologize for the tardy donation, but it was a pleasure to give to such a wonderful cause. I never would have known about it, if not for your posts, so thanks for serving as town crier. Perhaps my favorite aspect of the project is that I was able to make my donation in memory of William K. Everson, my beloved film professor at NYU many moons ago. He would have loved this project.
