Seven of the eight matches were blow-outs. The one close match was between Anne Baxter and Eleanor Parker as Baxter rallied from down as many as 13 points to overtake Parker and pull off the comeback victory. Congrats to all the talented women of this era as well. And good luck to the eight that move on to round 2 next week.
Tomorrow begins first round action of the other two categories...Funny Ladies/Girls Next Door and Singers/Dancers. Those matches will run through Saturday night. I will also post the results from the 30's and 40's eras tomorrow as well.
