The Roaring Twenties

Buy Tickets

(1939) dir Raoul Walsh w/James Cagney, Humphrey Bogart, Jeffrey Lynn, Priscilla Lane, Gladys George [106 min; 35mm]
After the WWI Armistice, Lloyd Hart (Lynn) goes back to practicing law, former saloon keeper George Hally (Bogart) turns to bootlegging, and out-of-work Eddie Bartlett (Cagney) becomes a cabbie. As the business of illegal hooch becomes more and more profitable, Eddie builds a fleet of cabs running booze and becomes George’s partner. With Lloyd as their lawyer, the three become powerful “businessmen.” But, as the rackets flourish with the help of violence and Tommy guns, the crash of 1929 and the end of Prohibition draw near, signaling a change in fortune for the trio.
