In 1967, Sylvia Hitchcock won Miss Alabama in a borrowed bridesmaids dress. Less than a year later this athlete and artist was crowned the most beautiful woman in the world. As her sparkle fades away in a small Florida town, Sylvia's inner beauty lives on beneath the crown.

Dr. Mills co-directed this film with Susan L. Gallagher, a Lake Wales actress who knew and admired Sylvia as a mentor and as a friend. It continues it's festival run, appearing in the Charlotte, Fort Lauderdale, and Gasparilla International Film Festivals among others. It won an Award of Excellence from the Broadcast Educators Association.
