It's within reach -- don't let up now

As the song goes, the waiting is the hardest part, and so it is for Carole Lombard, as she counts the minutes, the hours in her lavishly comfortable Paramount dressing room. As of midnight (Eastern), with 17 hours to go, Carole has a 30-23 edge over Barbara Stanwyck in the 1930s final of the 2013 Favorite Classic Movie Actress Tourney.

The past two years, Lombard has reached this stage and gone no further, beaten by Irene Dunne and Ginger Rogers (both now retired from the competition as overall champions). By winning the '30s crown, Carole would advance to face the '40s, '50s and '60s champs for the overall title.

This is where you can help, if you haven't done so already. Go to http://poohtiger-allgoodthings.blogspot.com/ and vote for Lombard (the site also has links to the '40s, '50s and '60s finals). A seven-vote lead is nice, but not insurmountable -- she needs every vote she can get. Help Carole proudly strut her stuff when this is all over.
