Ken Burns has made some excellent documentaries like The Civil War, Baseball, Jazz, even one on Star Wars. (A favorite.) Next he is tackling the dark times, AKA Prohibition.
Coming this fall is a look into the 18th Amendment, and the years during Prohibition. Some great quotes from the trailer –
“Some call it bootleging. Some call it racketeering. I call it a business.”
“You cannot legislate morality. When you do legislate it, you create opportunities for who do not follow the law…”
Check out the trailer below. Grab beer, & watch in October. Blu Ray/DVD also for sale.
