Movie Ad of the Week: THE CONTEST (1977) a.k.a. THE MISS NUDE AMERICA CONTEST (1980)

James P. Blake's documentary about the 1974 Miss Nude America Pageant was filmed under the title NAKED CITY, INDIANA and first released theatrically by Trans-American in the fall of 1976 as MISS NUDE AMERICA ("A film exposing a bizarre American phenomena... and the man behind it"). The ad above is from its Madison, WI opening as THE CONTEST (from Atlas Films) on October 14, 1977. Below are two ads from 1980, when the Jerry Gross Organization re-released it as THE MISS NUDE AMERICA CONTEST.
