  • This Universal newsreel focuses on the repeal of Prohibition. As the December 5th deadline for the ratification of the 21st Amendment approaches, work is rushed at distilleries and bottling plants to prepare for the renewal of alcohol sales. In some towns, though, the lid is already off as the repeal of Prohibition is celebrated with old-time abandon. Gone are the days when federal agents could be seen destroying barrels of bootleg whiskey!
