New “Walter Mitty” Movie Fuels Fantasies Of A Fortune

The new “The Secret Life of Walter Mitty” movie traces its origins back to a popular short story by James Thurber from the 1930’s and to the Danny Kaye film it inspired in the 1940’s.  Now after all these years Ben Stiller has decided to direct and star in a new version – obviously believing that there’s a theme in those older efforts that will attract contemporary audiences.  Is he right?

Well, I think so.  Ben is counting on an appeal as old as time: the eternal allure of dreams that we hope will come true.  Walter Mitty daydreams constantly about adventure and romance and fortune.  He’s like a lot of people who fantasize about things like “Can I win my heart’s desire?” or “Can I scale the mountain top? or “Can I come into a ton of money?” — or maybe “Can I win a Big Check worth millions from Publishers Clearing House?”

We know that the idea of winning the PCH Sweepstakes is mighty appealing.  After all, we’ve observed its popularity since 1967 — when the top prizes were only a few thousand bucks.  Now in 2014 our top prize could be worth a lot more – and to YOU:  A Million Dollars A Year “Forever”!  Remember, that would be one million dollars every single year for our winner’s life, plus after that, one million dollars a year for the life of someone the winner chooses! Now that, my friends, is a fortune worth dreaming about.

And yet for some lucky folks it’s not just a dream; it has been a reality.  Just ask John Kutz or Connie Kiesser, each a winner of $1 Million in November.  They know first-hand that Publishers Clearing House is “The House Where Dreams Come True” – to quote the lyric from our advertising jingle a few years back.

Connie Kiesser

I have not yet seen Ben Stiller’s “Walter Mitty” movie, so I don’t know if it has a happy ending.  But this I can assure you: For some lucky person, an entry in our current special early look giveaway WILL have a very happy ending – when the Prize Patrol arrives at the door with roses, balloons, champagne and a Big Check and announces “You are PCH’s newest millionaire!”

Does that dream appeal to you?  Start making it come true by entering the PCH Sweepstakes today — and remember to enter every day for more chances to win.

Sweet dreams and good luck.

Dave Sayer

Prize Patrol Ambassador

Dave, I will go see Ben Stiller’s new Walter Mitty movie soon just because I’m already in it to WIN it when I talked to a PCH Staff by phone about the computer going to pick my customer ID number last night at 11:59PM when I didn’t lose hope at all!

I remember watching the Danny kaye movie when I was very young. I remember asking my father over and over again to play the Walter mitty movie. I think I thought that Walter mitty and the court jester were the same movie.
I’d like to have a child that would share great movies with me. That’s where you come in, Dave. Please visit me with your crew in tow. You’d make so many of my dreams come true with just one visit.

Does this dream appeals to me? It certainly does.
I enter the sweepstakes by mail and online. I play all the PCH games as many times as possible.

I know that “Lady Luck” will knock at my door sooner or later and I will have the privilege :) to meet in person the main Elves from PCH Prize Patrol: Mr. Dave Sayer, Ms Danielle Lam and Mr. Todd Sloane.

I am an optimistic, positive person. I like to “take Risks for a Better life”.

See you soon Elves. :) :) :) :) :)

But one thing I do know!!!And that is,#IWANTTOWIN

Yeah, I can relate to Walter Mitty as well. I was a total daydreamer all my life. I wasn’t even that great in school when I was a youngster because I could never pay attention, my mind would constantly wonder about other stuff. I honestly couldn’t help it. I am still a daydreamer now that I am grown up. I am constantly thinking about winning the PCH greandprizzes. Fingers crossed!

Am I going to find out if I’m Prize Patrol winner or not on monday when you and your crew are going to be on the road to Fairfax, Virginia for the first time ever to surprise me and award me with something else which is also a mystery prize?

Thanks Dave for that inspiring letter to all of us!!! I love your letters!!!

Well I have not seen this movie, I will have to wait until it comes out on DVD to watch it.

I just wanted to say I have been entering and playing everyday at PCH!!!

I do dream about winning at PCH everyday when I enter and I just wanted to share this with you… I wrote this in 2012, but I been doing this since 2007.

“So, I just want to wish every one the best of luck in entering the PCH sweepstakes too, I think of the PCH Jingle “Miracles can happen, can happen for you: Publishers Clearing House, the house where dreams come true.” I know it will happen for me someday, so I just have to look for that “Silver Lining” and keep on hoping, praying and dreaming of the PCH prize patrol will be knocking at my door this summer 2012 with the Lucky Windfall, The PCH Big Check “5,000.00 a week forever,” so that way I can see your PCH family the Prize Patrol gang!!!!”

Well, I am still staying POSITIVE and VISUALIZING it all happening to me that is winning this 1MILLION a year “FOREVER” Prize this 2014 and it would be a plus to become the first ever PCH MEGA SUPER winner from my state!!!
