CAROLE LOMBARD - My Favorite Actress

Wednesday, September 4, 2013

THE 2013 LOMBARD CUP begins this Sunday

I stated a few weeks ago that me and Kristen of Journeys in Classic Film would be holding The 2013 Lombard Cup on our two respective blogs. Her team against my team. 21 classic film actresses per team that we selected with my team captain being Carole Lombard and hers being Veronica Lake. Akin to golf's Ryder Cup, we will have 21 single matches pitting actress against actress where you guys get to vote on who you like more. Each week we will have 5 matches with the final week having 6 matches. There will be no tie-breakers and if a match ends in a tie then both teams will get half a point. Whoever wins the match gets a full point. And at the end of the month whichever team has the most points wins The Lombard Cup and will keep it at their blog for a full year. Then we get to do it again the following year with new team members. Me and Kristen will trade hosting duties as the first five matches will begin over at her blog for week 1. Then I will do the next five matches the following week and so forth. Here's the link to Kristen's blog:

And here are the first five matches. The polls will be up sometime on Sunday and will be one vote per match. So please go vote for your favorites.

TEAM CAROLE               VS           TEAM VERONICA
Carole Lombard                                 Veronica Lake

It's always good to see a blog post from you, Monty. I've missed you around blog land.

This tourney sounds like loads of fun. I'm quite looking forward to it.

Oh, bummer of a start to the football season for both of us.
