In 1917, the 18th Amendment sails through both Houses of Congress; it is ratified by the states in just 13 months, fueled by the many temperance campaigns in a movement spearheaded by the Women’s Christian Temperance Union. But Americans are about to discover that making Prohibition the law of the land has been one thing; enforcing it will be another. A Film by Ken Burns and Lynn Novick, 2011, 95 min.
