Back to the Grove: Carole vs. Joan has begun!

Carole Lombard and Joan Crawford are battling again -- but this time, their competition isn't taking place at the Cocoanut Grove in the mid-1920s, but in cyberspace today (http://mythicalmonkey.blogspot.com). And they aren't dancing, but vying to reach the finals of the Silents/1930s bracket of the 2012 Favorite Classic Movie Actress Tourney.

Lombard, winner of the "Funny Ladies" division, is facing Crawford, who won the "Tough Broads and Pre-Code Babes" division. The other semifinal pits "Singers/Dancers" winner Ginger Rogers against Greta Garbo, the last one standing in the "They Had Faces" division. Voting goes on through 7 p.m. (Eastern) Thursday.

Carole had some tough earlier outings against Jean Arthur and Myrna Loy, and she knows Crawford won't be an easy foe -- especially since Joan was one of the icons of the late 1920s. So that's why Lombard decided to take the flapper-era route in her latest banner, proving she had her own share of hotcha:

The 1950s and '60s matches are also already under way, while the '40s matches will start Monday morning.

1940s (http://rosalind-russell.blogspot.com)
Gene Tierney vs. Judy Garland
Bette Davis vs. Lucille Ball

1950s (http://dawnschickflicks.blogspot.com)
Grace Kelly vs. Debbie Reynolds
Elizabeth Taylor vs. Janet Leigh

1960s (http://poohtiger-allgoodthings.blogspot.com)

Catherine Deneuve vs. Natalie Wood

We look forward to your vote for Lombard!
