Winner of the Fourth Blogiversary Giveaway

And the winner of my Fourth Blogiversary giveaway is... (drumroll, please)

Jill! AKA Kitten Biscuits from the classic film blog Sittin' on a Backyard Fence. You can also follow her on @BiscuitKitten on Twitter.

This was her entry: 

"My all time favorite Cary Grant film is Hitchcock's NOTORIOUS. Grant worked with some great directors during his career, but no one uncovered the darker side of the Cary Grant persona better than Hitchcock. Grant's Devlin is the most complicated character he ever played and he did so beautifully. It is a shame he didn't play these types of roles more. I love Devlin's skepticism, his sex appeal and romanticism, his feelings of betrayal by Alicia (while betraying her), and his redemption. I also can't forget to mention Ingrid Bergman. She and Grant had excellent chemistry, which makes all the difference. Plus they are both ridiculously sexy in this film.
I love NOTORIOUS so much that I drove 4 1/2 hours to Savannah, GA with my husband (we live in Atlanta) to see a 35 mm screening. A glorious moment I will never forget. "

I would like to second the "ridiculously sexy" comment! Too true. And she makes a great point about Hitchcock bringing out Cary Grant's darker side. He did the same in Suspicion (1941). And driving 4-1/2 hours to see Notorious?! That's some serious dedication right there. 

Thank you to everyone who entered my giveaway!
