DAILY MAIL promotion....
Complete DVD series of all time great Hollywood movies...Absolutely free!



Starting on Saturday October 17, and every day for the next two weeks, the Daily Mail and The Mail on Sunday are giving everyone a chance to get a complete series of 14 all-time great Hollywood movies, absolutely free!

Kicking-off with a true movie classic on Saturday October 17, a copy of The Graduate will be FREE inside your Daily Mail. This iconic movie stars Dustin Hoffman as Benjamin Braddock, a graduate in turmoil over his lack of direction and his uncertain, yet impending future who is desperate to avoid the corporate, deluded and mediocre world of his affluent parents. Benjamin is seduced by the wife of one of his fathers business partners, the enigmatic Mrs Robinson but what starts as just a fling becomes a painfully complicated affair when he finds himself falling in love with Mrs Robinson's daughter.

There's a free copy of all time classic The Graduate in every copy of the Daily Mail on Saturday October 17 and then on October 18, you'll find a free copy of cult comedy favourite Austin Powers inside The Mail on Sunday



Then the following day, inside The Mail on Sunday on October 18, you can get a FREE copy of Austin Powers - International Man of Mystery. The brilliant film, set in 1997, thirty years after being cryogenically frozen, 1960s British super spy Austin Powers is thawed out to tackle his old arch-nemesis Dr Evil who is holding the world to ransom. But a lot has changed in thirty years and Austin’s groovy 60s style and swinging attitude are now totally out of place. Both a box office smash and an enduring cult favourite, Austin Powers: International Man Of Mystery is one of the most successful comedies of all time. This hilarious spy spoof has earned itself a permanent place in pop culture with its quotable lines, excellent soundtrack and brilliant dual star performance by Mike Myers. There’s also great support from Elizabeth Hurley as Austin’s sexy sidekick Vanessa Kensington and Robert Wagner as Dr Evil’s henchman Number Two, as well as side-splitting performances from Michael York, Seth Green and Will Ferrell.

With this exclusive collection of 14 fantastic all time great Hollywood movies, you’ll be able to enjoy some of the best moments in Hollywood history, time and time again and what's more it doesn't have to cost a penny!

How To Claim
Getting the full series couldn't be easier. The first DVD in the series, The Graduate, will be inside every copy of the Daily Mail on Saturday October 17. Then the second DVD in the series, Austin Powers will be in every copy of The Mail on Sunday on October 18.
Then a Voucher will be printed in the Daily Mail and The Mail on Sunday each day from Monday October 19 right up to Friday October 30. Simply cut it this Voucher each day and the voucher to your nearest Tesco or Sainsbury store where, in return, you will be given that day's DVD. The collection builds over the week into a superb 14-disc library of all time great Hollywood classic movies.
Alternatively, if you prefer you can collect seven differently dated tokens from those we will print each day in the Daily Mail and The Mail on Sunday from Monday October 19 over the next few weeks. Then send them along with a cheque (made payable to the Daily Mail) for £6.99 to cover P&P and admin costs to the following address:

Hollywood Icons DVDs
P.O. Box 5002
Dept. HWI
Alton
Hants, GU34 9BZ

We will send you the complete collection of DVDs by post. Please allow up to 356 days for delivery.
If you missed previuos DVDs, don't worry as you can still get the full set by post as we will be printing tokens in the paper from Monday October 19 over the next few weeks.
You can also claim and excellent presentation case which will help to keep your DVD colection safe and organised and will look great as part of your whole DVD library. We'll tell you more about this later in the promotion.

Coming Up Over The Next Two Weeks!

The Graduate
This iconic movie stars Dustin Hoffman as Benjamin Braddock, a young graduate who is seduced by the wife of one of his fathers business partners, the enigmatic Mrs Robinson, played by Anne Bancroft. But what starts as just a fling becomes a painfully complicated affair when he finds himself falling in love with Mrs Robinson's daughter.

Austin Powers
This hilarious spy spoof has earned itself a permanent place in pop culture with its quotable lines, excellent soundtrack and brilliant dual star performances by Mike Myers as super spy Austin Powers and Elizabeth Hurley as his sexy sidekick Vanessa Kensington. Together they tackle his old arch-nemesis Dr Evil who is holding the world to ransom.

The Elephant Man
Nominated for eight Oscars and starring movie giants John Hurt as the Elephant Man and Anthony Hopkins as a well meaning surgeon, this is an extraordinary and intensely moving true story of bravery and humanity. Forced into circus sideshows and spurned by polite society, the Elephant Man attempts to fit into a world ruled by Victorian sensibilities.

Mr & Mrs Bridge
Husband and wife team, Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward star as Mr & Mrs Bridge, an affluent and conservative couple living in 1930s Kansas who feel the pressure on their already stale marriage as their children leave home to pursue their own lives. This is the touching story of a family staying together against all the odds.

The Cotton Club
The Cotton Club is award winning director Francis Ford Coppola's acclaimed take on the crime-filled underworld of the infamous jazz age. The Cotton Club is the place to be. Gangsters mingle with the rich and famous and very beautiful people. Richard Gere gives an inspired performance as a young musician who is dranw into this glittering world where violence hides beneath the glamour.

The Lion In Winter
Starring Peter O'Toole and Katherine Hepburn as King Henry II of England and his formidable wife Queen Eleanor of Aquitaine, this film follows the story of their quest to determine who should be the future King of England. The relationship between them is fiery and their passions turn from tenderness to fury as they scheme and cajole their three sons.

Darling
Julie Christie plays the part of Darling in this story of a stylish, amoral model in 1960's London, during the era which saw the ascension of the model girl to the status of international idol. The men in her life, willingly or involuntarily, help her on the way to the top. Also stars Dirk Bogarde as a TV interviewer and Laurence Harvey as a cynical advertising executive.

El Cid
El Cid, starring Hollywood giants Charlton Heston and Sophia Loren, is a tribute to one of history's greatest legends. This dazzling spectacle, with a cast of thousands, fills the screen with action and romance - from knights in armour jousting on horseback to massive battles on sea and land, where columns of warriors stretch across the horizon.

Croupier
Clive Owen heads a strong cast in this atmospheric thriller of sexual and financial temptation set in London's gambling world. Jack Manfred (Owen) is an aspiring writer going nowhere fast. Against his better judgement and to make ends meet he takes a job as a croupier but is soon drawn into the glamour and intrigue of the casino, with disasterous results.

Black Narcissus
Based on a novel by Rumer Godden, Black Narcissus stars Deborah Kerr and Kathleen Byron as nuns dedicated to the Indian mission in which they work. Obstacles in the life of a nun's community high in the Himalayas range from a cynical British Agent to suspicious natives. The mission prospers, but often at the expense of spiritual progress........

A Town Like Alice
This is a tale of endurance, cruelty and comradeship with two of British cinema's top stars, BAFTA winner Virgin McKenna and Oscar winner Peter Finch. It tells the story of a group of women befriended by a touch Australian POW, who are captured by the Japanese in Malaya during Wordl War II and are forced to endure appalling hardships as they trek through the jungle. 

The Go-Between
Based on the novel by LP Hartley, The Go-Between links the prsent and the past taking on ageing bachelor back to the long hot summer when he was twelve and lost his boyish hear to a beautiful, headstrong young woman who used his adoration to suit her own purposes. Starring cinemas favourites Julie Christie and Alan Bates. 
Farewell My Lovely
The neon-drenched, smoke-filled LA of 1941 forms the background for this acclaimed adaptation of Raymond Chandler's novel. Philip Marlowe (Robert Mitchum) has two cases on his books - and they many not be as unconnected as they seem. Before he knows it, Marlowe finds himself surrounded by murder, intrigue and a secret but deadly connection.

The Cassandra Crossing
A terrorist infected with a deadly virus boards the Stockholm to Geneva Express and exposes everyone onboard to the disease. With an all-star cast including Sophia Loren, Burt Lancaster and Richard Harris, this film tells the spectacular and terrifying story of 1,000 doomed passengers trapped aboard a plague-infested train and the race against time to save them.

Nope - the recession has.

Most of the newspapers that had regular free DVDs always said that it actually cost them more to do it (in terms of licences, rights, packaging etc) than they actually made in extra sales (for those editions, at least), but those extra sales nevertheless meant extra numbers in the readership, the thinking behind it being that perhaps a proportion of people (to make it easy, let's use an example of 10 in 100), who initially only bought the paper for the free DVD, would decide to carry on buying the paper afterwards. But obviously the free DVD train got started when financial times (no pun intended) for most were good and bigger businesses could effectively "throw" money away without worrying too much.

Of course that's not the case now, so I guess they've thought better of it.
