Age of Innocence, The Beaufort Ball

Guests at The Beaufort Bash 
In the movie "The Age of Innocence", a fabulous movie based on the book by Edith Wharton, after attending the opera, Newland Archer and his fiancée May attend the usual annual opera ball of Mrs Julius Beaufort at the Beafort brownstone, said to be one of the first homes in the city to have a ballroom. Mrs Beaufort had come from an respectable old South Carolina family; her husband, Julius, however, was a shady socialite know for his numerous affairs and lovers (secretly he was dead broke). It was said that Edith Wharton had gotten her inspiration for Mrs Beaufort from Caroline Astor (who was one of her relatives). Mrs Astor was known for her annual opera balls, known as the "Patriarch's Ball". She had had a brownstone on 34th Street that which possessed one of the first private ballrooms in the city. Julius, it was said, had been inspired by August Belmont Sr., another shady socialite who was secretly a Jew.
