• Short Summary

    Good scenes of beer being served - the best way to celebrate the end of Prohibition.

  • Description

    Unused / unissued material - no paperwork - dates unclear or unknown

    French title reads: "Etats-Unis. Le regime sec a vecu". French voiceover.

    United States of America.

    Barrels of beer are loaded onto a horse drawn cart. The cart is drawn through the streets. Good shots of beer being served in an American pub or bar. CUs of beer being served into glasses. Beers are slid down the bar. The drinkers start to sing. Shots of man's foot on bar, he keeps slipping off, suggesting he is drunk. Very speeded up film of men drinking and barmen at work, lots very funny.

    N.B. The story is highlighting the end of prohibition and the return of alcohol for sale.
