  • Short Summary

    Women pose for a screen beauty competition - cinema goers are invited to vote for their favourite.

  • Description

    No title.

    Three women are shown striking poses for the camera in various outdoor locations. They do not seem like professional models, the last of the three in particular looks very nervous. Cinema goers are invited to vote for their favourite. It could win them £100. There is a recap of several entrants with their numbers. End titles read: "Further details of this Competition will be found in the "Sunday Express".

    Note: This story is spliced on to "Eve's Film Review Alternative Title Competition Result" on EP037 but is a different story. It seems that Pathe ran several beauty contests for cinema goers. The women who feature in these competitions seem like amateurs as they often look very nervous. See also "Pathe Beauty Contest "on EP066 and "Pathe Beauty Contest 2" on EP070.
