Copy #: 1
Status: available
Duration: 2 hours, 0 minutes
Media: 1 DVD
Keywords: Jazz, Ken Burns


Brilliant in-depth study by film maker Ken Burns of the Jazz era. Episode 2, THE GIFT: flappers, Prohibition, speakeasies, and the booming stock market-the uproarious "Jazz Age"-sets the tone for this episode, and the story of jazz becomes the story of the two great cities, Chicago and New York.
