Round 3 is underway

Just a quick note that round 3 of the favorite Hitchcock Leading Lady tourney has started. Match 1 features top seed Grace Kelly taking on 5th seed Janet Leigh while 2nd seed Joan Fontaine battles 3rd seed Ingrid Bergman. I think Grace will blow the doors off of Janet but Joan and Ingrid will be a barn burner. Very close. Matches will run till Thursday evening. Then the final two ladies left standing will start their match on Friday. Good luck to all four women.

Round 2 results/Semi-Finals are now set

So round 2 is officially in the books and three of the top four women are going on. Overall top seed Grace Kelly continues on her path to win her first ever tourney after always reaching the final four and coming up just short. She dominated Teresa Wright 31-18, winning 63% of the votes. Second seed Joan Fontaine had to hold off scrappy Eva Marie Saint for a wild 28-23 victory. My girl Carole Lombard got lambasted by 3rd seed Ingrid Bergman in the round's biggest margin of vivtory, 32-18. So sad to see Carole go yet again in another tourney. And 4th seed Kim Novak got upset by 5th seed Janet "Psycho" Leigh 26-23. So the semi-final matches are set to begin Sunday evening as Grace Kelly faces Janet Leigh and Joan Fontaine battles Ingrid Bergman. 

1 GRACE KELLY

Upset Alert in Round 2

Round 2 has heated up big time with two of the four matches being very close. Top seed Grace Kelly is pulling away from Teresa Wright by the count of 25-12. This match was relatively close on day one. That same score is also featured in my girl Carole Lombard's match against 3rd seed Ingrid Bergman. So it looks like Carole and Teresa won't be moving on to the next round. Now as far as the other two matches are concerned..whoa nellie, it's coming down to the wire. 10th seed Eva Marie Saint is giving 2nd seed and beloved favorite Joan Fontaine all she can handle. Joan currently leads 20-18 and this match has been close every single step of the way. If Eva could stage a little rally this would be a huge upset. And in the final match, Janet Leigh leads Kim Novak 21-16, with Novak making a little surge as she was down by as many as 8 votes at one point. So we have two more days until this thrilling round is complete, please spread the word and let's make this an exciting finish.
Eva is hanging in there.....giving Joan Fontaine a run for her money!

Round 2 update

After a full day of voting, the second round is yielding more closer matches. Well three of the four are. My girl Carole is getting killed by Ingrid Bergman 19-11. Top seed Grace Kelly is slowly pulling away from upstart Teresa Wright 18-11. 4th seed Kim Novak is losing to 5th seed Janet Leigh 17-11 which is kind of surprising. Her Vertigo is widely regarded as Hitch's masterpiece. And Joan Fontaine is getting all she can handle from Eva Marie Saint 16-12. Matches continue through Friday evening. If you haven't voted yet, please do so.

Not too many upsets as the first round of The Favorite Hitchcock Leading Lady Tourney wraps up

First round of the Favorite Alfred Hitchcock Leading Lady Tourney is in the books and there was just two upsets as all the other top seeds won their respective matches. Grace Kelly, who is seeded number 1, rolled to an easy 34-5 victory over last seed Tallulah Bankhead. 2nd seed Joan Fontaine blew out 15th seed Sylvia Sidney 35-4. 3rd seed Ingrid Bergman had the biggest margin of victory with a 35-3 thrashing of Ruth Roman, garnering 92% of the votes. 4th seed Kim Novak easily dispatched 13th seed Doris Day 29-12 (Que Sera, Sera). In the battle of the Crane sisters from the Psycho film, Janet Leigh defeated Vera Miles 30-9. The first upset occurred when 6th seed Tippi Hedren got taken down by 11th seed Carole Lombard 27-14, in what was the most voted match in the first round. Much love to my fave actress of all time Carole as she tries to win a tourney for the first time. Being all so close in previous classic movie actresses tournaments. The other upset was between 7th seed Madeleine Carroll and 10th seed Eva Marie Saint. It was Saint who edged Carroll 22-17. And the final match was between 8th seed Teresa Wright who pulled away from 9th seed Margaret Lockwood 25-14 after the match was very close early on. Congrats to all the actresses who now move on to round two which begins Sunday evening. And thanks to all those who voted. Below are pics of all the winning actresses!

Round Three Day One Update

The excitement is not letting up as we move onto part 2 of round three of the favorite classic movie actress tourney. Here are the day one numbers so far...


SILENT/30'S ERA
"Another tough match? Go figure"....Carole says to herself

CAROLE LOMBARD 57 MYRNA LOY 57
IRENE DUNNE 70 GINGER ROGERS 59


My girl Carole is in another dogfight. This time with the equally popular Myrna Loy and they are dead even. But this match has been back and forth all day long. And we've got 2 more days to go. Don't know how much I can take. In the other match Ginger Rogers has fought her way back against defending champion Irene Dunne to make this a much closer match. Currently down by 11 votes, Ginger at one point was down by as many as 24.


40'S ERA


ROSALIND RUSSELL 40 LUCILLE BALL 32
JUDY GARLAND 44 RITA HAYWORTH 35


After a close start to both matches, a little separation is starting to take place. Top seed Russell has expanded her lead to 8 votes over Lucy while Judy Garland has increased her lead to 9 votes over Rita Hayworth.


50'S ERA


DEBBIE REYNOLDS 45 DORIS DAY 35
JANET LEIGH 52 MARILYN MONROE 29


Now this is the era where things are really, really interesting. Both top seeds are losing and losing big. Overall top seed Doris Day is down by 10 votes to the scrappy Debbie Reynolds. Which is only a mild shock considering the popularity of Reynolds. But 2nd seed Marilyn Monroe is getting hammered by Janet Leigh. What's funny is that right before my lunchtime today MM had a small 4 vote lead. Since then Leigh has rung up 30+ votes to open up a huge margin. Talk about a surprise!


60'S ERA


ANN-MARGRET 39 JULIE ANDREWS 29
JANE FONDA 40 NATALIE WOOD 30


And speaking of upsets, the same thing is happening here to the top 2 seeds. Julie Andrews is down by 10 votes to Ann-Margret and last year's final four finalist Natalie Wood is down by 10 votes as well to Jane Fonda. Actually Natalie was getting beat worse than that, down by as many as 14 votes before making a mini-run in the past 2 hours. Exciting, exciting, exciting. The matches continue on thru Saturday night.

Classic Horror Films: Day 13 (PSYCHO - 1960)

One of Hitch's best films he ever made. Anthony Perkins is perfect as Norman Bates, a young man who runs The Bates Motel, who has a serious mother fixation. Along comes Janet Leigh, a young woman on the run from the cops for stealing money from her job. And the rest is cinema magic. Psycho set the standard for all the slasher flicks that would follow, but it's still the best one. It works as a thriller and a character piece. You really get to know Norman Bates and Perkins does a helluva job. Janet Leigh is pretty good too. A must see.
