The Classic Movie Actress Tournament is narrowing the field.  The 32-32 tie between Teresa Wright and Shirley Temple was solved with a 7-1 vote in favor of Wright’s film, Mrs. Miniver.  With that, Teresa moves on and a new group of gals comes forward.  This next round of polling goes through Monday so spread the word and make your vote count!

  1. 1 vote for Shirley in the tie-breaker? Seriously? Guess who cast that vote? Yep, yours truly, once again marching to the beat of her own drum.

    Olivia and Maureen was a very tough choice. I love them both!

  2. Hardest one for me was Olivia vs Maureen….but Olivia wins for her performance in The Heiress. Altho I love Maureen just as much.
