As directed by the popular Ken Burns, and narrated by Blythe Danner, Patricia Clarkson, John Lithgow, Paul Giamatti, Oliver Platt and Tom Hanks, the three-part documentary miniseries PROHIBITION delves into one of the most controversial periods in American history - that which followed the 18th Amendment, with all alcohol banned from commercial sale, distribution and consumption in the United States. Prohibition, as Burns reminds us, lasted a whopping 13 years (1920-33), turned millions of ordinary U.S. citizens into criminals, and gave additional lift to the mob. Here, Burns weaves together the personal stories of flappers, bootleggers, gangsters, and many others, meanwhile unveiling the era's even darker undercurrents, such as the presence of smear campaigns, unfunded mandates and double-minded lobbyists. This box set contains the entire series as it originally aired on public television.
