    The One and Only Jewish Miss America

    September 1945: Americans are mourning their lost soldiers - and antisemitism is rampant. Yet Bess Myerson, the tall and talented daughter of poor Jewish immigrants from Russia, a girl who grew up thinking she was ugly, improbably wins the worlds most famous beauty pageant.

    Through film footage, photographs and interviews, this landmark documentary tells her heroic story. Learn how Bess Myerson turned the discrimination she faced as the first - and still only - Jewish Miss America into a lifetime of challenging the status quo.
