Behind the Scenes with the Bootleggers (1926)
3min · Documentary, Short, News · 1 February 1926
This newsreel depicts the inner-workings of a bootleggers' facility for making and distributing illegal bootleg liquor. The participants, all of whom wear masks, mix liquids and pour them into bottles while a portly African-American worker keeps coming and going with supplies. A shot of the finished product, a pan across a row of bottles with clearly visible labels, is followed by a final shot of prohibition agents destroying the seized goods.
