1 BARBARA STANWYCK VS 1 CAROLE LOMBARD
Both women are number 1 seeds from their respective categories...Babs from
Pre-Code Babes and Carole from Funny Ladies
1 BETTE DAVIS VS 1 RITA HAYWORTH
Bette is top seed from Drama Queens and Rita is top seed from Sophisticates
2 DORIS DAY VS 2 AVA GARDNER
Doris is the second seed from Singer/Dancers while Ava is second seed from
7 SHIRLEY JONES VS 7 DIANA RIGG
And finally two seven seeds are still hanging around, Shirley representing
Song and Dance while Diana represents British Invasion. The last time a
seed this low was still around was when Irene Dunne, who was seeded 10th
in the original tourney went all the way and won the whole thing. So there's
a chance one of these women can make some magic again.
