There are few events that have captivated filmmakers more than the tragic story of the Titanic. Of course, we all know James Cameron's monumental film, but there were many iterations of the tale before that, including Jean Negulesco's 1953 classic starring Barbara Stanwyck and Clifton Webb. And this week, it hits shelves restored to high-def, Blu-ray ready glory and and we've got a couple of copies for some lucky readers.

Titanic

There are few events that have captivated filmmakers more than the tragic story of the Titanic. Of course, we all know James Cameron's monumental film, but there were many iterations of the tale before that, including Jean Negulesco's 1953 classic starring Barbara Stanwyck and Clifton Webb. And this week, it hits shelves restored to high-def, Blu-ray ready glory and and we've got a couple of copies for some lucky readers.

Winning an Academy Award for Best Screenplay, and also nominated for Set Decoration, the film follows Julia Sturges (Stanwyck), eager to escape the high society trappings of her life with husband Richard (Webb), who embarks on the R.M.S. Titanic in England to travel to America with her two children. Hoping to reconcile with his family, Richard purchases a steerage ticket aboard the ship, unaware of the fateful events that loom ahead. How can you get your hands on a copy of the disc for yourself?

Email us your name, address along with the name of three other movies or TV series about the Titanic, and who they were directed by. Good luck! Winners will be notified via email. Update: Contest closed.

"Titanic" on Blu-ray hits arrives on Tuesday, January 15th. Watch the original theatrical trailer below.
