Set against the background of the Battle of Waterloo, Becky Sharp is the story of Vanity Fair by Thackeray. Becky and Amelia are girls at school together, but Becky is from a "show biz" family, or in other words, very low class. Becky manages to insinuate herself in Amelia's family and gets to know all their friends. From this possibly auspicious- beginning, she manages to ruin her own life, becoming sick, broke, and lonely, and also ruins the lives of many other "loved ones". In the movie we get to see the class distinctions in England at the time, and get a sense of what it was like for the English military at the time of the Napoleonic wars.

Paul and his friend, the doctor, are anxious to attend the Mardi Gras, but their wives do not favor the expedition. Not to be discouraged, the men hit upon a subterfuge and reach New Orleans, where they fall into the holiday spirit and don masqueraders' costumes. Unfortunately they adopt the same wardrobe worn by two escaped lunatics who imagine themselves to be Julius Caesar and Macbeth and are garbed accordingly. The wives, having suspected their husbands, come to New Orleans and discover the disguise of the two excursionists. They are not aware, however, that the lunatics in the same attire are at large. The wives, masquerading, meet the lunatics and thinking them to be the husbands, decide to humor them. Then the two men appear and find their wives in company with two strangers. The many laughable situations which arise and the novel scenes of the Mardi Gras make this original comedy highly entertaining.
