Prohibition fueled gangsterism in the 1920's, as the public turned to illegal means to quench their thirsts. That, in turn, fueled the 1930's boom in gangster films, led by Warner Brothers studios and their stars Edward G. Robinson, James Cagney, and Humphrey Bogart.
On Tuesday, October 21st, Turner Classic Movies will celebrate the gangster film with a night of Warner Brothers classics and a brand-new documentary, Public Enemies: The Golden Age of Gangster Film. The doc starts at 8PM Eastern/7PM Central, and booze is sure to play a leading part.
