Torchy Runs for Mayor

"Star' reporter Torchy Blane …
"Star' reporter Torchy Blane is on a mission to expose local crime boss 'Doc' Dolan and his corrupt puppet mayor. Working with a petty thief, she bugs the mayor's office and discovers the existence of Dolan's "little red book" of payoffs and bribes. This information helps her to break into Dolan's house and find the book. Unfortunately Dolan's syndicate is able to pull advertising from "The Star," and coerce them into not printing the story. A frustrated Torchy is turned down by every other paper in town with the exception of principled editor Hubert Ward. The resultant publicity forces a recall election with Ward standing against the corrupt administration. However, after Dolan murders him, the only one willing to run in his place is Torchy.

The Life of Emile Zola

Struggling French writer …
Struggling French writer Émile Zola is more concerned about exposing social and public injustices through his writing than he is about earning a living. However, he does ultimately become a success as a writer, and as a result lives a life of comfort and class. Late in his life, he, on the most part, places his life as a social crusader behind him. Late in the nineteenth century, French Captain Alfred Dreyfus, adamantly professing his innocence, is accused, tried and convicted of treason against the French republic and banished to Devil's Island. New information comes to light of Dreyfus' innocence, information suppressed by the French military in the name of protecting public morale and information which is brought to Zola's attention by Mme. Dreyfus. Initially not wanting to get involved, Zola decides to reignite his social consciousness by defending Dreyfus in the court of public opinion, at the risk of his own personal standing and safety.

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.
