This Universal Newsreel footage features 1931 Miss Universe Anita Netta Duchateau of Belgium posing after winning her crown. Also shown is Ann Lee Patterson, the 1931 Miss United States. The Miss United States and Miss Universe titles were awarded during the International Pageant of Pulchritude held in Galveston. However, 1931 was the last year the pageant was held in Galveston due to the onslaught of the Great Depression.
