Did You Know?


The puppets of Becky, Rawdon and other characters that appear in the program's title shots are in keeping with the original sketches created by William Makepeace Thackeray to accompany the story when it was first published in serial form. According to Thackeray, "The famous little Becky puppet has been pronounced to be more commonly flexible in the joints and lively on the wire." See more »

Sparkling early colour production
24 October 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Vanity Fair was I think BBC's first colour serial, made in 1967 with Susan Hampshire and Roy Marsden, both looking impossibly young, as Becky Sharp and George Osbourne.

Thackaray's novel is set in the Napoleonic Wars and cries out for colour and life, both of which this five parter delivers. From the opening with a puppet show to lovely performances, largely from actors now forgotten, this adaptation is very good and wears its age well.

As Becky, Susan Hampshire isn't as obviously scheming as Eve Matheson was twenty years later, but she radiates charm with a knowing smile. It is an interpretation of the character which works well.
