Win 'Kiss of the Spider Woman:Collector's Edition'

Oscar®-nominated film available for the first time EVER on DVD.




Special Collector’s Edition Two-Disc Set and Blu-Ray Includes New Full-length Documentary: "Tangled Web: Making Kiss of the Spider Woman."

The Academy Award-winning film "Kiss of the Spider Woman" becomes available on October 21 for the first time at traditional retail outlets. Beginning in June, the Special Two-Disc Collector’s Edition on DVD, also available on Blu-Ray, had been sold exclusively on

"Kiss of the Spider Woman" debuted in 1985, and is based on the 1976 novel "El Beso de la Mujer Arana" by Manuel Puig.

Available just in time for the beginning of the holiday 2008 gift-buying season, the special Collector’s Edition features the never-before-seen documentary “Tangled Web: Making Kiss of the Spider Woman.”

Sal Scamardo, president of City Lights Home Entertainment, said, " 'Kiss of the Spider Woman' has been one of the most sought-after properties by major studios' home video distribution divisions. As such, City Lights is especially thrilled to have been given the opportunity to market and distribute 'Kiss of the Spider Woman' -- initially via and now, beginning on October 21, to traditional retaile outlets."

"Kiss of the Spider Woman" was the first independent movie ever to receive the top four Oscar® nominations, including Best Picture and Best Director for Hector Babenco. The film was adapted for the screen by Academy Award®-nominated screenwriter Leonard Schrader and produced by David Weisman from Manuel Puig's novel of the same name.

Set in a non-specific Latin American country, the film takes a penetrating look at the role of sex and politics under an oppressive right-wing regime. The timeless story follows the complex relationship between two very different men, each with an opposite view of life; the drama builds to an emotionally powerful crescendo as the two men come together in a stunningly transcendental conclusion. William Hurt’s Oscar®-winning performance is a captivating tribute to the power of film and fantasy as means to escape inhumane conditions.

So, if you would like to win one of these new DVDs then just answer this easy question: This groundbreaking film was the first independent ever to receive the top four Oscar nominations - including Best Picture, Best Director ... and which other two (2) nominations?!
