Win a quiet night in with Glenn Gould

COMPETITION: GLENN GOULD VIDEOS; PLUS `QUIZ SHOW' WINNERS

FRANCOIS GIRARD's Thirty Two Short Films About Glenn Gould (U), a film portrait of the relusive and brilliant Candian pianist, was one of last year's art-house hits. Each of the film's 32 vignettes, which span Gould's life from the age of four to his early death at 50, represents a variation on his life and work. The result, starring Colm Feore as the adult Gould, is a mesmerising kaleidoscope, sometimes abstract, sometimes narrative, mixing actors with Gould's real-life friends and relatives, and framed by Gould's own musical performances. Thirty Two Short Films About enn Gould is released tomorrow on video (Electric Pictures) and costs £15.99; but we have 15 VHS copies of the video and 15 copies of Otto Friedrich's acclaimed biography, Glenn Gould: A Life and Variations (Methuen, £12.99) to give away. To enter, simply answer the following question, on a postcard to: Glenn Gould, Arts Desk, Independent on Sunday, 1 Canada Square, Canary Wharf, London E14 5DL. The closing date is Friday 10 March.

How old was Glenn Gould when he first found international fame with his celebrated recording of J S Bach's Goldberg Variations?

! Usual competition rules apply; the editor's decision is final.

n ON 19 FEBRUARY, we ran a competition offering readers the chance to win a Fifties-style Art Deco "Retrovisor" television set worth £699, or a private screening for 50 people of the hit film Quiz Show, courtesy of Buena Vista. We asked readers to come up with questions to match the following answers:

1 "Waif", not "Alf". (With what do you rhyme the Ralph in Ralph Fiennes?)

2 He got out of his car and shouted across to him, asking for directions. (How did Ralph Fiennes meet Charles Van Doren, whom he plays in Quiz Show?)

3 Amon Goeth. (What was the name of Fiennes' character in Schindler's List?)

The winner of the TV set is V C Pennington of London NW6; the winner of the screening is J Coleman of Merton College, Oxford. Our thanks to everyone who entered.
