It's HARLOW vs MONROE in the next Classic Stars Match Play

You can tout this match as a battle of the blondes as Jean Harlow and Marilyn Monroe lace it up for my next classic stars match play. Both actresses got bumped after only one match during the classic actress tournament back in March. Harlow lost to Myrna Loy in the 30's era, while Monroe, who was seeded second got upset by Gloria Grahame. So both women now are looking for their first match play win. Good luck to both women. Match begins immediately and will run thru Thursday 8 pm EST.
