The Night They Took Miss Beautiful was released on television on October 24, 1977 starring Victoria Principal, Gary Collins, and Chuck Conners.

Summary: The movie opens with five women in a beauty contest that's being shown on national TV. Marv baker who had a little too much to drink is announcing the five winners of the beauty contest. The next morning the 5 winning contenders are at the airport waiting to take a flight to NASA. While contestants are waiting, two men go up into the plane dressed as mechanics. Rolly Royce who is the director goes to Mike O'Toole wanting to know why he's not letting the fans go out to the plane to cheer for the contestants. O'Toole is worried about people getting hurt at his airport and that's why he forbid the people to go to the plane. While the contestants were boarding the plane they were greeted by the media and there camera's. As the women went up the ramp they posed for pictures in there each and unique way. Once the airplane gets into the air, the two men dressed in mechanic outfits come out and enter the cockpit of the airplane. The two men tell the pilot to drop the plane to under two hundred feet. When one of the pilots tries to contact, the tower he is shot.

Questions: What was the two men dress as mechanic doing on the plane? Did the pilot who contacted the tower live? Why did the two men want the plane to fly under two hundred feet? Where did the men want the plane to go? What happen to the contestants that were on the plane? Where did the plane land?

My Thoughts: I bought this movie because of Victoria Principal and I wasn't disappointed. I thought she played her character very well. I also thought that Sheree North was great in her character as Layla Burden.

I remember watching this on tv when it came out. It didn't impress me as a teenager and it doesn't impress me much, now. The actors, with the exception of Gregory Sierra, just walk through their rolls or "act" with a capital "A". It's like watching an episode of 'The Love Boat' or 'Fantasy Island' - a parade of old stalwarts (Stella Stevens, Phil Silvers, Sheree North, Chuck Connors, Peter Haskell), a few newer faces like Victoria Principal, Karen Lamm ("Thunderbolt and Lightfoot" "The Unseen" "Ants"), some decorative touches like Gary Collins, Henry Gibson, and ALL people who would've benefited from a better script. The plot sounds promising - hijacking a plane and kidnapping 5 beauty contestants plus extra passengers (including uber stage mother "Mama Barrett", played by Marcia Lewis) for a ransom of $1 Million (seemed like more money back then) and an escape plane. The cast of characters includes four low-lifes including Gregory Sierra & Sheree North, who's "on the stuff" but going cold turkey right now; a couple of Secret Agents transporting a cigar vial containing enough deadly virus to wipe out the "entire United States" (Collins, Principal); an unfunny, ailing emcee (SIlvers); a former pageant winner (Stella Stevens) and her Wig, an airport security chief with integrity (Chuck Connors); and cliche' gov't agents (Haskell) with a secret agenda and obligatory dark glasses, who are in charge of Taking Care of Business (TCB); all end up on an island for the final face down. Who will survive? There's not really much tension, there's an obvious but perhaps unintended reminder of why beauty contests became seen as little more than meat displays, and a reminder that even gov't cover ups can be dull. With Don Kirshner on board as one of the executive producers.Read more ›

A run of the mill made for TV movie. Chuck Connors saved the flick with his totally believable role as airport chief of keeping everything safe. The real star of the movie is the seaplane. Victoria Principal's Grocho Marxx will be viewed as a classic bit years from now. Mama sending her little girl out back to serve the kidnapper, brings 1970's drama to the little screen. Every time they pass the cigar tube with the toxic germs to one another, take a drink. If you want, fast forward and watch Cary Collins sacrifice his life to save mankind.
