Nicknamed Fifi, Finger bested a field of 44 delegates to win the title in Long Beach, California. Since the successive edition of the pageant was held two years after her crowning in 1967, she holds the distinction for the longest reign of any Miss International winner. By the time she passed on her crown to Mirta Massa of Argentina, her reign had exceeded 20 months.
