Prohibition was repealed in 1933 and the era of speakeasies came to an end. 1935 marked the beginning of the Swing Era and public dance halls. These are the sounds of the music that mark that dramatic transition from the dance bands of Fletcher Henderson, Benny Good­man, Casa Loma, and Jimmy Lunceford (& Ina Ray Hutton!) to such early sound-film stars as Shirley Temple and Fred Astaire.
