Summary "Prohibition, abortion, unions, atheism, the vote for women, worker safety, organized crime, loan sharking, race relations, juvenile justice, homelessness, immigration - virtually no social issue was too controversial for movies during their first decades. These issues and more are brought to life through 48 films preserved by George Eastman House, the Library of Congress, the Museum of Modern Art, the National Archives, and the UCLA Film & Television Archive. TREASURES III presents the turbulent period when movies helped change America" -- Set container.
