Overview

In a neon glow, from 1940s to the 1960s, Montreal moved to the rhythm of its innumerable cabarets and clubs. The city’s often smoldering night-life overflowed into the dark corners of illegal gambling houses and beyond the curtains of brothels. Scandal! Had Montreal really become an epicentre of vice and corruption? An inquiry sets out to answer this question.
