Carole Lombard is proud to broadcast the news that she has advanced in the quarterfinals of the “Funny Ladies” division of the 1930s bracket of the 2013 Favorite Classic Movie Actress Tournament, easily dispatching Margaret Dumont, 58-7. In other matches from the second half of the 1930s group:

Jean Harlow 54, Margaret Sullavan 9
Jean Arthur 37, Una Merkel 36
Myrna Loy 49, Thelma Todd 25
Bebe Daniels 37, Shirley Temple 32
Eleanor Powell 52, Luise Rainer 14
Ruby Keeler 42, Mae West 26
Joan Blondell 48, Jeanette MacDonald 18

The first half of the 1930s second round is currently going on at http://poohtiger-allgoodthings.blogspot.com. Lombard’s next match will be later in the week. The above site has links to second-round play currently going on in the 1940s and 1960s brackets. (It also has a link to the second half of the first-round 1950s matches; a computer glitch forced the earlier results to be thrown out. Both halves of the ’50s second round will take place later in the week.)

Lombard begins pondering strategy for her next match…
