Description

This is a black and white two-image photo of Miss Movie Girl Betty Philbin. She is posing for the camera in a garden setting, wearing jeans and a denim shirt with some buttons undone to the waist. These might be the images Philbin sent to the Sunday World newspaper as part of her entry to the Miss Movie Girl competition which she would later win in 1973. Philbin, age 20 from Galway, was a former Tyler’s Model Girl, and a Salthill Princess. As part of her prize, she represented the film festival, and Ireland, at national and international events including the Arnhem Film Festival in Holland where she appeared on Dutch television and spoke on the radio there.
