A queen deposed, but work is not yet Dunne

There was lots of Carole Lombard news to report in entry #1,500, but I decided to hold this one because it deserved its own entry. Carole is in the finals of the "All Good Things" March Madness tournament for silents/1930s actresses. Lombard, the fourth seed, posted a 59-41 conquest of ninth-seeded Myrna Loy (famed for being named "queen of Hollywood" in a 1936 fan poll) in one of the semifinals.

Carole's foe in the finals won't be easy -- she's 10th seed Irene Dunne, who's won her three matches by large margins, most recently a 64-36 victory over sixth-seeded Claudette Colbert. Note that vote total is 100, same as the Lombard-Loy battle. That may indicate the voting booth can only take so many ballots.

What's that mean? Time is probably of the essence. Voting will begin at about 8 a.m. (Eastern) today, and while it's slated to end at 6 p.m. Monday, there's an awfully good chance that it will reach 100 votes well before then. In other words, don't delay. As soon as you can, go to http://poohtiger-allgoodthings.blogspot.com/ and cast your vote for Carole. The winner will advance to face the winner of the other tourneys for 1940s, 1950s and 1960s actresses.

And if you need a reminder why to vote for Lombard, well, here's another lingerie screencap from "No Man Of Her Own" (specifically screencap 0830), as Carole exhibits her schoolgirl track star form -- in high heels, no less. Let's see Irene try that.

Yeah I noticed that too VP about the 100 vote limit. But I am excited about today's match. Come on Carole.
