Synopsis

#123movies #fmovies #putlocker #gomovies #solarmovie #soap2day Watch Full Movie Online Free – In Prohibition-era Kentucky, Internal Revenue agent Frank Long figures he could make a dishonest buck by squeezing the moonshine producers. First, he targets an old army buddy, John Martin aka Son, and demands a cut of the moonshine profits in exchange for looking the other way. However, with Prohibition rumored to soon come to an end, Son figures he could refuse Frank’s offer and wait until after the federal elections that promise to legalize alcohol production. Annoyed by Son’s refusal, Frank lodges himself in a local hotel and starts a daily harassment routine against Son and other local moonshiners. Faced with an armed response from the outraged moonshiners, Frank realizes he is outgunned and outnumbered. He decides to call-in hired help, Dr. Emmett Taulbee and his gunman Dual Metters, two unscrupulous gangsters from the big city. However, Frank and the two gangsters fail to intimidate Son and the other moonshiners. The local town lawman, Sheriff Baylor, is friendly to the moonshiners and frequently ‘samples’ their product. Fed-up with the situation, Dr. Emmett Taulbee appeals to his gangster friends from the East who arrive armed-to-the-teeth in town. As a federal agent, Frank cannot condone any killing and he asks Taulbee and his gangster friends to refrain from killing anyone. The only shooting allowed is that of the moonshine stills. Nevertheless, things get out of hand when the gangsters kill the sheriff and his deputy. When Frank protests the killings, Taulbee tells him to get lost. Now unwilling to share any profits with Frank, Taulbee chases Frank out of town and aims to confiscate all the moonshine for himself and his gangsters. He targets Son’s farm first because it hides the largest stash of moonshine casks, worth tens of thousands of dollars. Expecting this, Son fortifies his farm with barbed-wire, sand-bags, booby-traps and firing positions. When Taulbee and his men converge on Son’s farm, Son and his employee Aaron try to defend it. Having second thoughts about leaving town and full of remorse, Frank decides to join Son and help him fight off Taulbee’s gang.
Plot: A federal agent attempts to make some real money before the alcohol ban is lifted so he sets his sights on the whiskey cache of an old army buddy.

Reviews:

somebody missed it
After reading Mr. MacIntyre’s review about “The 1932 Moonshine War” I’d have to conclude that Mr. MacIntyre’s review of this movie was 80 percent ignorance and 20 percent assumption.

The movie is based in the last days before the repeal of the 18th Amendment of the U.S. Constitituion which made it a crime to import, buy or drink alcohol. A complete failure in regard to legislation. The principle of the movie revolved around a LARGE stash of 8 year old whiskey owned by Alan Alda’s char acer that distributors would of paid twice their weight in gold for. What Mr. MacIntyre’s missed was that the time and place were during the Great Depression in the Kentucky, the American South, which was triple-poor compared to the rest of the world. Alan Alda’s character was not part of a family, but a member of a community who made whiskey to sell to the rest of the country because the soil of their farms could produce little else to keep them from going hungry. It was choice many people made during those times. The whiskey for Alda’s character was a legacy from his father and his ticket out of the poor house along with his lady friend. Part of the dialog was leaving to go live in California, the eternal promise land even by today’s standards.

Patrick McGooan’s character was CROOKED, as in criminal, Federal officer looking to make himself rich from his old Army buddy “Son Martin’s” whiskey. He was anything, but hard working and when confronted by the black man with the shotgun, even less so. Thus, his contact with Richard Widmark and his gang. When the gang found they no longer needed McGooan’s character they turned on him. In turn Alda’s neighbors turned on him, when the gang, posing as MORE Federal officers started raiding his neighbors stills and homes. They refused him service and credit at the local store among other things. I saw this flick as teenager and the storyline has remained with me for decades. It seemed that much of the story revolved around the old nursery rhyme about Chicky Licky who no one wanted to help make the bread, but they sure wanted to help eat it. The same thing is definitive in this movie, but the ending was beautiful in the destruction of the bad guys and the reconciliation of the neighbors. I’m surprised this movie isn’t out on DVD or VHS.
