An American view of the Roaring Twenties.

Produced as part of the film documentary series "Project 20" for the National Broadcasting Company.
See foot of page

"The Jazz Age" was the term F. Scott Fitzgerald gave to the Roaring Twenties in America. This television documentary programme, made by the producer and team which made Victory At Sea, and the documentary about the Atom Bomb, Three, Two, One-Zero, is a reconstruction of the decade from the Peace Treaty of Versailles in 1919 to the Wall Street crash in 1929. It shows America and Americans undergoing perhaps the most profound change in morals and manners of their entire history. It shows the coming of Prohibition and the flapper, the resurgence of the Ku Klux Klan, the speak-easies, and the rise of the gangster.

The film recalls the excitement of Charles Lindbergh's first solo flight across the Atlantic and shows the tumultuous scenes as New York welcomed him back again. It revives pictures of Presidents Wilson, Harding, Coolidge, and Hoover. It draws on film footage from archives both private and public. The musical score recalls the popular tunes of the 'twenties.
This film is part of the Project 20 programme launched by the National Broadcasting Company.
