Titles read: "WASHINGTON SOCIETY BALL".
At the charity 'Velvet Ball', we see various shots of American socialites parading down a catwalk dressed as English Queens through the ages. An audience of Washington high society look on; Bessie Merryman, aunt of the Duchess of Windsor (Wallis Simpson), covers her face with her clutch bag to hide from the camera. The historic catwalk parade continues with more socialites dressed as America's first ladies. The real Eleanor Roosevelt takes a bow from her balcony seat
