One of Jamie uys's best comedies from the 60's Jamie uys as we all know made the best comedies.(My lord oom piet,my broer Mattie.The gods must be crazy and funny people).This one is hilarious and storyline is excellent.Die professor en die prickle pop does not fall flat like so many beauty contest movie do.Pietergrhamesbush has it's first annual beauty contest with a total of R25000 to be won all the pretty girls enter but one Hungary girl enters she is dirt poor and she really hads to win because she want to bring her brother and father out of Hungery to south Africa so that they can start a new life.So arriving in pieergrhamesbush she confides in the professor.He is not good with woman and always mess things up.The movie is very funny
