The Beauty Jungle (also known as Contest Girl) is a 1964 British film directed by Val Guest.


While on a seaside holiday a young typist is persuaded by a local journalist to enter a beauty contest. When she wins, she decides to give up her previous career and life and take up entering the contests full-time.



Much of the early footage in the film was shot at Weston-super-Mare (including the now-demolished lido), Butlin's at Minehead and the Redcliffe area of Bristol.[2]
