    Reducing this clip's current date range 0f1914-19, Miss Sabbage won this event in 1919.

    For winning the competition she also won a role in a feature film - and ended up marrying the cinematographer!

    I am interested in the comment that she married the cinematographer! She actually married a sanitary engineer in Bombay in 1921!
