(1968, Frank Simon) Behind-the-scenes tsouris of “The Miss All-American Camp Beauty Pageant” at NYC’s Town Hall, judged by Andy Warhol, et al. — as drag queens vie for the coveted crown. Invaluable document of a burgeoning sub-culture, with a backstage intrigue rivaling All About Eve. Approx. 68 min. 35mm.

“A gutsy, funny, pathetic, really very moving documentary about the 1967 All-America Camp Beauty Pageant."
