WIN: a prize pack consisting of a poster and a T-shirt from the new flick The Black Dahlia

HOW: write a funny caption for an image from the movie

THE RULES: If you have not won a prize in one of my caption contests or gimme giveaways in 2006*, and you have a United States mailing address, you’re eligible to win. If one or both of those rules exclude you but you’re moved by the muse of comedy, feel free to send me a caption anyway — you might get an honorable mention… but let me know you’re entering only for fun. (*Micropatrons who’ve snagged some exclusive micropatron goodies are eligible to win one of these prizes.)

Oh, two more simple rules: 1) Be clever, be original, make me giggle. 2) One entry per person.
The new noir thriller The Black Dahlia — starring Josh Hartnett, Aaron Eckhart, Scarlett Johansson, and Hilary Swank, and directed by Brian De Palma — opens on Friday, and to celebrate, I’ve got a prize pack — consisting of a poster and a T-shirt — to give away, courtesy of Universal Pictures. Here’s the scoop on the movie, from Universal:

Master storyteller Brian De Palma, known for such classic crime dramas as The Untouchables, Scarface and Carlito’s Way, as well as his suspense thrillers Carrie, Dressed to Kill and Blow Out, directs this adaptation of James Ellroy’s (L.A. Confidential, American Tabloid) best-selling crime novel.

The Black Dahlia weaves a fictionalized tale of obsession, love, corruption, greed and depravity around the brutal murder of a fledgling Hollywood starlet that shocked and fascinated the nation in 1947 and remains unsolved today. Two ex-pugilist cops, Lee Blanchard (Aaron Eckhart) and Bucky Bleichert (Josh Hartnett), are called to investigate the homicide of ambitious silver-screen B-lister Betty Ann Short (Mia Kirschner) A.K.A. “The Black Dahlia”- an attack so grisly that images of the killing were kept from the public.

While Blanchard’s growing preoccupation with the sensational murder threatens his relationship with Kay (Scarlett Johansson), his partner Bleichert finds himself attracted to the enigmatic Madeleine Linscott (two-time Oscar winner Hilary Swank), the daughter of one of the city’s most prominent families—who just happens to have an unsavory connection to the murder victim.

True crime meets urban legend when De Palma brings Ellroy’s The Black Dahlia to the big screen.

Erik’s winning caption: “Josh spent many unsuccessful weeks trying to find just one shot of Mia Kirshner that looked even remotely like Hilary Swank.”
