    Federal Republic of Germany, Western Germany.

    MS. Line of contestants for Miss Germany parading on dais in bathing suits in a large hall. MS. Section of band marching through small Bavarian village during a folklore festival. MS. Girls parading. Various shots of the tough men taking part in a competition called 'Knuckling' in a Bavarian village in which they test the strength of their knuckles by looping a piece of string around their middle fingers and pulling against each other. The village elders look on.

    Various close up shots of the women applying makeup juxtaposed to close up shots of the village elders watching knuckling - great effect. Various shots of the contestants posing and being measured up for statistics, the judges watch closely. Various hots of the winner being crowned - she is Helga Carla Ziesemer of Nuremberg.

    (F.G.)

    Date found in the old record - 29/05/1963. Brilliant footage of the girls being measured.
