BARBARA STANWYCK, a clear favorite, has just been crowned champion of this era, the 1930s. She beat out Myrna Loy, another popular actress, 51-43. She will face 1950s champion Audrey Hepburn on Saturday afternoon on Monty’s blog, http://www.poohtiger-allgoodthings.blogspot.com

This means that my participation in the tournament is now over. I have had fun, as I do every year. Thank you, Monty, for inviting me to co-host again! I loved every minute!
