She has advanced!

This news is a bit belated, but welcome just the same: Carole Lombard has advanced to the second round of the all-time glamour girls tournament, staged at the Yahoo! site "Glamour Girls Survey."

Participating in the 25-member Group 24, Lombard needed to finish in the top nine to automatically advance -- and she placed a solid fourth with 63 points, including eight first-place votes (http://groups.yahoo.com/group/glamourgirlsurvey/message/18703).

Among the others advancing were Elizabeth Taylor...

...Irish McCalla of "Sheena" fame...

...buxom '60s starlet Joy Harmon...

...and Virna Lisi, winner of the inaugural (and perhaps only) Carole Lombard Award in 1966 (http://carole-and-co.livejournal.com/185501.html):

We'll let you know when Carole will compete in the second round.
