    The title of this clip is incorrect.

    This is in fact the "Miss America 1965" contest, (although the contest was held on 12 September 1964).

    "Vonda K Van Dyke" should read Vonda Kay Von Dyke.

    Seen at 00:21 is Miss Arkansas, Karen Carlson, later to marry (and divorce) the actor David Soul.

    Seen at 00:37 is Miss West Virginia, Ella Dee Kessel.

    The man exuberantly announcing the result at 00:56 is host Bert Parks.

    At 01:05 the winner is crowned by the previous winner, MIss America 1964, Donna Axum.
