The Silent/30's Era:
Defending champion Irene is having little trouble with Luise
There is only one really close match..between Shirley Temple and Hattie McDaniel. The other matches are all blow-outs. Happy to report that my girl Carole Lombard is having no trouble at all, trouncing her My Man Godfrey co-star Gail Patrick 55-10. And that defending champion Irene Dunne is rolling as well, beating the brakes off of Luise Rainer 54-7. Jeanette MacDonald and Mae West have a somewhat close match with Jeanette leading by only 6 votes.

THE 40'S ERA
The one and only Judy Garland
Top seed Rosalind Russell is putting it to Jeanne Crain with a thorough beatdown so far, 46-6.
Lucille Ball has stormed back to lead Maureen O'Hara after falling behind early. Jane Wyman and Donna Reed are embroiled in a close match. All Good Things classic movie goddess of the month Teresa Wright is having some trouble with Eve Arden. losing 23-18. And what I thought would be a close match is not as Rita Hayworth is whipping Hedy Lamarr 34-10.

THE 50'S ERA
Doris has adapted to the 50's for this year's tourney with no problem at allAnother era filled with blow-outs. The lone exception is between Vera-Ellen and Leslie Caron, with Vera holding a 3 point edge. Marilyn Monroe, who famously got knocked out of the first round last year by Gloria Grahame is not gonna have that happen again as she is crushing Joanne Woodward. And Doris Day who competing in the 60's era last year has had little trouble adjusting to life in the 50's as she is handling Jane Russell. Same thing for 60's cross-over Janet Leigh, as she is up big on Jayne Mansfield. And first timer Thelma Ritter is enjoying an easy going match over Eva Marie Saint.

We have one tie at this point and it's between Sandra Dee and Glynis Johns. The premiere match though has to be Ann-Margret and Raquel Welch. Right now Ann has a 8 point advantage. Top seed Julie Andrews is crushing Jeanne Moreau.
