The Golden Twenties is a documentary, made in 1950, examining the experiences of Americans during the 1920s. Through archival video and newsreels, the film begins with the armistice of World War I in 1918 and ends with the stock market crash in 1929. In between, the film covers the United States Congress granting women the right to vote, the flapper fad, Charles Lindbergh's flight over the Atlantic Ocean from New York to Paris, the birth of radio, the ascendance of the automobile, the popularity of silent films, the emergence of talking pictures, and the Charleston dance craze. The documentary also portrays the rise of organized crime, prohibition, prostitution, and the speakeasy, as well as the efforts to combat them. Notable figures from the period also appear such as Rudolph Valentino, who was a silent film star, Babe Ruth, Charlie Chaplin, Al Capone, Charles Lindbergh, and Presidents Warren G. Harding, Calvin Coolidge, and Herbert Hoover.
