Becky Sharp

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.

Letty, a young woman who ended up pregnant, unmarried and on the streets at fifteen is bitter and determined that her child will not grow up to be taken advantage of. Letty teaches her child to lie, steal, cheat and anything else he'll need to be street smart. We meet Letty when Mickey is 7-1/2. Mal enters the picture when his truck and Mickey, who is hanging on to the back of a delivery truck and being pulled along the streets on his roller skates, collide. Mickey is not injured badly, but when Letty discovers that Mal is rich, she concocts a scheme to take Mal to the cleaners. When her plot is uncovered, Letty is also discovered for the unfit parent that she is, and Mickey is taken away from her. Mal and his wife Alice, unable to have children of their own, take Mickey in and give him a father's love, a true mother's love, and a home he can call his own. Letty is jealous of Mickey's growing attachment to these two good people and she still sees Mal as a ticket to riches. Letty seduces Mal, records the seduction and then plans to blackmail Mal. Her plans are upset when Mal immediately tells his wife, and Alice accepts the relationship. Letty learns a painful lesson in selfless love and finally sees that what is best for Mickey is more important than her own plans.

His butler, Rollins, although tries to convince him that he would be happier falling in love and settling down, nonetheless aspires to his boss' lifestyle. Wayne, however, truly is tiring of his womanizing ways. Helene and Lita Andrews are sisters living together in a one room apartment. Helene is the more sensible one, she who is a currently unemployed but trained stenographer, and who supports Lita while Lita tries to get work as a dancer on the stage. Lita, however, would rather that some rich man marry and pamper her. Through indirect means, Wayne meets the sisters. Impressed by Helene and the good head she has on her shoulders, Wayne later tracks her down solely to offer her a well paying job as his executive assistant, he not having any ulterior motives in his offer. Despite being suspect that he is only after her as a woman, she accepts. In time, the two form a trusting business relationship, which slowly turns to attraction and love on both sides. But Helene isn't sure if Wayne has truly given up his womanizing ways, especially as some of his past conquests don't seem to want to leave him alone, one in particular, married Agatha Carraway, whose jealous husband, Herb Callaway, a friend of Wayne's, will shoot to kill anyone he suspects of fooling around with his wife. In addition, Helene has to deal with some personal issues that Lita is facing with a man she suspects is much like the old Wayne.
