MD Poll: The Odd Couple

It was a tight race for the MD Poll title of "Favorite Classic Comedy Couple", but in the end, Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau came out on top.

The original Odd Couple (who co-starred in nine other movies together, including The Fortune Cookie, The Front Page and Grumpy Old Men) surged ahead in the final voting past strong contenders William Powell & Myrna Loy and Katharine Hepburn & Cary Grant. In fact, for a while there it looked like there would be a three-way tie for the number one spot.

For the complete stats on this week's poll, see the comments section below.

UPDATE: TCM's Movie Morlocks takes their own look at classic comedy pairs.
