The FINAL FOUR is now set
The Elite Eight round is now complete and we have our finalists for this year's final four! In the 30's era, it was Myrna Loy defeating Jean Arthur 57-39, marking Myrna's first trip to a final four. In the 40's era, it was red hot Greer Garson staging a late rally to overtake Rosalind Russell and win 89-71. That gives Greer her 5th win this tourney, as previously she had no wins prior from the first four tourneys. In the 50's era, it was a rematch from last year between Audrey Hepburn and Doris Day with the same results as Audrey defeated Doris 35-20. Only difference was last year it ended on Doris Day's birthday. And finally in the 60's era, it was Natalie Wood crushing Shirley MacLaine 140-29, sending Natalie back to the final four for a 3rd time. So the match-ups in the final four as tradition states will be the 30's era winner vs the 50's era winner which is Myrna Loy vs Audrey Hepburn. And the 40's era winner vs the 60's era winner, Greer Garson vs Natalie Wood. Audrey is the only #1 seed to make it to final four. And Audrey is only the 4th actress to be in consecutive final fours. She joins Bette Davis, Grace Kelly and Natalie Wood in that distinction. The other three # 1 seeds were Barbara Stanwyck, Olivia de Havilland and Elizabeth Taylor that failed in their bid to reach the final four.Greer is the long shot, ranked #6. Matches will begin tomorrow morning and take place here on All Good Things.
