CAROLE LOMBARD - My Favorite Actress

It will be an all musical affair for the final match to decide favorite classic screen couple...

The championship match to decide favorite classic screen couple will feature two great film couples known for their dazzling musical prowess. Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers will take on Nelson Eddy and Jeanette MacDonald for all the marbles. In the semi-final matches which concluded today, both couples breezed through for easy wins. Astaire and Rogers defeated Cary Grant and Irene Dunne 42-22 while MacEddy took down expected contenders William Powell and Myrna Loy 88-64. Actually that match was still going on as Desiree lives on the west coast and still has the poll open. But it's pretty much over. The final match will make for an all musical affair. And should make for an interesting match! The match will take place on Desiree's blog, Rosalind Russell: Dazzling Star. Desiree will have the match up and running sometime this weekend. Here's the link to her blog:

I'm surprised that Eddy and MacDonald made it so far. I feel like I never hear anyone talk about them. Fred and Ginger--not such a shock. Happy Thanksgiving Monty!

Hard to believe Wm. Powell and Myrna Loy are being trounced by MacDonald and Eddy - I'm guessing somebody's fan club must've gotten the word out!

With hundreds of people in the MacEddy fan club, that's exactly what happened.

Also, it's not really that hard to believe considering they have one of the largest fanbases in the classic Hollywood fandom.
