Wasn't Bad
18 January 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

TITLE: THE GREAT American BEAUTY CONTEST was a TV movie that was released on television on February 13 1973 and this movie took 74 minutes to watch. The movie starred, Farrah Fawcett, Joanna Cameron and Susan Damante Shaw

SUMMARY: The integrity of a beauty contest is threatened by a scandal involving a judge, a former winner, and one of the finalists. The contestants start to arrive one by one. Farrah arrives with her boyfriend and he was told to leave if she wanted a chance to win. Joanna Cameron shows up with a group of women who are against The Great American Beauty Contest. She trying to get into the contest to win so she can belittle the contest if she does win. Susan Damante Shaw arrives and she is caught in a scandal that was somewhat similar to the one that the head of the contest was in. One of the judges wants to see Susan in his room so he can make her an up and coming star. However, it doesn't happen and the Judge is ask to leave.

QUESTIONS: Where did all these girls come from? Was there a scandal involved in this contest?

MY THOUGHTS: This wasn't a bad movie but it wasn't a good one either. Sure, you see Joanna Cameron, Farrah Fawcett, and Susan Shaw in bathing suits but you didn't see them very long. Based on action and drama in movie along with Farrah, Joanna, and Susan in bathing suits I give this movie 7 weasel stars
