We’re opening things up with this contest, opting to give two DVDs away instead of one. The first, Gumshoe, stars Albert Finney as Eddie Ginley, a comedian turned private eye who gets into hot water when he meets a fat man and a femme fatale. Armed with only rapid-fire banter and a sharpened instinct, Ginley must save the dame from a drug-smuggling ring before the joke’s on him. Paying homage to Bogart, Chandler and Hammett, Gumshoe puts a clever spin on the classic detective tale.
The second DVD — which, like the first, is part of Sony’s Martini Movies collection — features Alec Guinness (aka Obi-Wan Kenobi) as a vacuum cleaner salesperson recruited by the British Secret Service to become an unlikely agent in Cuba. To avoid working while cashing the checks, he spins a web of lies about foreign government secrets. When the local coppers decode his fake messages, all hell breaks loose in Havana and he must become the spy he dreads in order to survive his own swindle.
