The Roaring Twenties 83 years old

The land of the free gone wild! The heyday of the hotcha! The shock-crammed days G-men took ten whole years to lick!

The Roaring Twenties

After World War I, Armistice Lloyd Hart goes back to practice law, former saloon keeper George Hally turns to bootlegging, and out-of-work Eddie Bartlett becomes a cab driver. Eddie builds a fleet of cabs through delivery of bootleg liquor and hires Lloyd as his lawyer. George becomes Eddie's partner and the rackets flourish until love and rivalry interfere.
