Screwball Film Tourney Day 2 Update

A lot of the matches which were blow-outs haven't changed much as the leaders have increased their lead to even bigger amounts. But there are some matches that are back and forth that will probably go down to the wire on Friday. Ball of Fire leads Sullivan's Travels 19-17 and it has been a back and forth match since day one. I don't know how it will turn out. An even closer match is taking place between The Palm Beach Story and Libeled Lady. Currently Beach leads by the score of 15-14. Can't get much closer than that. And there is one match which started out as a massacre has suddenly became more interesting. Case in point, one of the top 4 seeds, Trouble in Paradise was getting trounced by My Favorite Wife after day one to the tune of 14-2. The score now is 18-11, still in Wife's favor but Paradise has made it a match now. Another interesting match is going on between The Lady Eve and Ninotchka with Eve up 17-12. Very close. Here are the complete scores of all the matches through day 2:
