In case you missed Monty's full report this morning, this were the numbers here at the Monkey:
#1.Carole Lombard def. #4.Jean Arthur, 80-78
#2.Myrna Loy def. #3.Jean Harlow, 78-58
"Singers and Dancers"
#1.Irene Dunne def. #4.Jeanette MacDonald, 111-18
#3.Ginger Rogers def. #7.Hattie McDaniel, 85-42.
You read that right—defending champ Irene Dunne racked up 111 votes to Jeanette MacDonald's 18. There have been more competitive plebiscites.
And that race between Carole Lombard and Jean Arthur seesawed back and forth for three days, setting a record for most total votes (158) in the process.
Per Monty's lead, Round Three will again be split into a pair of three days sessions. Part One, which begins now, will run until Wednesday at 10 p.m.
"They Had Faces"
#1.Greta Garbo v. #6.Gloria Swanson
"Tough Broads and Pre-Code Babes"
#1.Barbara Stanwyck v. #3.Joan Crawford
P.S. Extra credit to anyone who correctly identifies how the Stanwyck/Crawford photo differs from the original.
