#1.Greta Garbo def. #6.Gloria Swanson, 75-57

"Funny Ladies"
#1.Carole Lombard v. #2. Myrna Loy

"Singers and Dancers"
#1.Irene Dunne v. #3.Ginger Rogers

Argh, that was a tough round for me! Barbara losing, Lauren Bacall losing over in the '40s bracket... I has a sad now.

But on to the, Lombard vs. Loy. You guys aren't making the choices any easier, are you? I'm choosing Rogers over Dunne, but the returning champion clearly has a lot of fans, so I'm not holding out much hope for my Ginger.

...ok...Irene is great, but...Ginger's automatic for me across the board, right? MAY come down to Ginger vs Carole...well, I'm "all in" for VKM, obviously, and I know where VP will fall as well...

Great stuff here, MM!
