CAROLE LOMBARD - My Favorite Actress

Friday, March 4, 2011

MARCH MADNESS Round Three (Silent/30's ERA) is underway

The semi-final matches have begun and promises to be both competitive matches. Carole Lombard is the last top seed left at number 4 as she squares off against the red hot 9th seed Myrna Loy. While Carole has had two impressive wins including the 71-9 rout of Marlene Dietrich yesterday, Myrna has been really strong. Her opening round against Jean Harlow was an unexpected blowout 36-13. And then she just ripped number 1 seed Greta Garbo 60-13. This match between Loy and Lombard promises to be an event match up. While I love and adore Myrna, Carole is my girl, so I will be going for Ms. Lombard.

The other semi-final match pits 6th seeded Claudette Colbert against 10th seeded Irene Dunne. Everyone should keep an eye out for Claudette who has quietly been going on about her business, low key and with little fanfare. She beat her first two opponents pretty handily with wins against Louise Brooks 40-8 and Norma Shear 50-24. 10th seed Irene Dunne has made it this far thanks to solid wins against Clara Bow 38-13 and a surprisingly easy victory over 2nd seed Barbara Stanwyck 59-38. Whoever wins these two matches will meet in the Silent/30's bracket final to decide who will become the first actress to have a spot in the Classic Movie Actress Final Four. All very exciting stuff.
