And The Winners Are...

The Wild Wild West: The Complete Second Season
Kimberly Merlo-Lindbergs, USA, whose favorite spy movie is Modesty Blaise


Drive-In Double Feature: Assassination In Rome/Espionage In Tangiers
Chris Delloiacono, USA, whose favorite spy movie is On Her Majesty's Secret Service

Thanks to everyone who entered, and thanks to CBS/Paramount Home Video and Dark Sky Films for providing the prizes for this contest. Prizes will be mailed out to the winners at the addresses provided, and winners will also be notified via email.

Both winners show excellent taste in their spy viewing, as did everyone who entered. On Her Majesty's Secret Service was by far the biggest favorite, which makes sense since it is the best Bond movie ever! Right? The Living Daylights and The Spy Who Loved Me were also very popular, also understandably. Interestingly, the only Connery anyone mentioned was From Russia With Love, which a few people listed. Well, those are all great choices. It's so hard to nail down one favorite Bond film, and chances are Bond will trump most others when it comes to spy flicks anyway. An enterprising few listed a favorite Bond and a favorite non-Bond separately, which might be the best way to do it. Other entries ran the gamut from The Ipcress File to, ahem, Spy Hard. (But I think that was a joke.)

Congratulations to both winners, and to the rest of you, there will be other contests, so please try again in the future!
