Round 2 update

Round 2 has intensified with some great matches that will go down to the wire. Here are the current numbers:


Eleanor Powell leads Bebe Daniels 41-24
Joan Blondell leads Ruby Keeler 65-2
Carole Lombard leads Jean Harlow 48-25
Myrna Loy leads Jean Arthur 47-24

Everything is going according to plan in this era, especially with Joan Blondell crushing Ruby Keeler. Dang, mercy!


Rita Hayworth leads Lucille Ball 32-20
Maureen O'Hara leads Loretta Young 29-26
Gene Tierney leads Claire Trevor 34-22
Lauren Bacall leads Ida Lupino 31-25

A couple of close matches are going on here especially with O'Hara and Young. They have traded leads the entire match and now Maureen is up by 3 votes. Can she hold the lead for one more day? We shall see.


 Audrey Hepburn 39 to Janet Leigh 14
Deborah Kerr 29 to Anne Francis 24
Grace Kelly 47 to Gloria Grahame 6
Marilyn Monroe 30 to Lana Turner 23
Elizabeth Taylor 28 to Eleanor Parker 25
Ava Gardner 34 to Susan Hayward 19
Jane Russell 27 to Debbie Reynolds 26
Doris Day 39 to Cyd Charisse 14

Every top seed is winning their match here with the exception of Debbie Reynolds. She is down by one vote to Jane Russell. Grace Kelly is crushing Gloria Grahame. Marilyn Monroe and Elizabeth Taylor have some close matches though and hope to hold on to advance to round 3.


Julie Andrews leads Maggie Smith 34-33
Diana Rigg leads Angela Lansbury 37-35
Anne Bancroft leads Patricia Neal 48-25
Paula Prentiss leads Tuesday Weld 47-14

A pair of barn burners as John has written are separated by  1 vote in one match (Andrews vs Smith) and 2 votes in the other (Rigg vs Lansbury). Will be going down to the wire.

Voting for these matches end this evening and then round 3 will begin tomorrow.

Everything is going according to plan, you say? Did you really expect Carole to be nearly 20 votes ahead of Jean? Honestly? While I might have expected Carole to win, I expected Jean to put up much more of a fight. She's quite beloved to many!
