It's here! The John Wayne blogathon has arrived! And yes, you read that correctly -- this includes a giveaway. Info on that at the very bottom of this post. But first, here are the awesome blogathon entries! I'll be adding to this list as I get links to posts. So entrants, leave the links to your entries in the comments here or at the Midnite Drive-In!

Many thanks to Quiggy for thinking up this fun event and asking me to cohost, and to all you lovely bloggers who are participating, be it by contributing a post, reading entries, or both!
I am giving away six used John Wayne movies on 5 DVDs, one each to five lucky winners. They are Hatari! (1962), Hondo (1953), McLintock! (1963), Red River (1948), and a double feature of what are possibly his finest westerns, Rio Bravo (1959) and The Searchers (1956). Please be aware that these are all USED -- they all load and play in my DVD player, but I cannot guarantee they will work in yours.
This giveaway runs through Thursday, December 15. I will draw five winners (one for each DVD) on Friday, December 16, and post the names of the winners that day, as well a notify them by email. I can only send these to US addresses because of shipping being so expensive these days. Of course, if you have a friend who lives in the US that is willing to have it shipped to them for you, that's fine, but I won't send them internationally.
PLEASE make sure your information for the giveaway widget includes your current email address so that if you win a prize, you'll get the email informing you that you won! If you don't reply to my email within one week, I will choose another winner and award your prize to them instead.
The first way to enter, as you see, asks you to tell me your top two prize choices. I do my best to match winners with their choice of prizes, but that doesn't always work out. If you already own one or more of these movies, please say so with the next entry option-- that way they can go to someone who doesn't own them yet! (If you don't own any of them, you can still use that entry option and just answer something like "none.") Enter via this widget:
