    This acclaimed film version of Peter Stone's Pulitzer Prize-winning musical, which was one of the last big-budget studio musicals, stars William Daniels (TV's Saint Elsewhere) as John Adams and Howard Da Silva as Ben Franklin. A rollicking, anachronistic treatment of the creation of the Declaration of Independence, with the American forefathers conducting themselves with uncharacterstic--and comical--indignity. Academy Award Nominations: Best Cinematography (Harry Stradling, Jr.)

    • Better, still not complete

      A good dub of a somewhat restored version of the original. It's still around 10 minutes shorter than the old Laserdisk release, which included all the footage deleted from the theatrical release, so (for example) song like "Sit Down, John" are still somewhat trimmed. But since most of the cast of this film came from the Broadway original, this is as close as we will ever get to experiencing the show in its original form. And it's still a great show that does a remarkable job of mixing musical theatre and mostly pretty accurate history.

    • Great movie

      I don't usually care much for musicals, but this one is terrific. Much of it is very funny, and all of it is highly entertaining. It shows much of the struggle and debate, led by John Adams along with Benjamin Franklin and Thomas Jefferson, to get our Declaration passed through the Continental Congress.

    • 1776-An experiment in freedom

      1776 tells the story of the Declaration of Independence, from choosing the committe to write it and the battles to get passed and signed unanimously. The political struggles were real, the great men were capable of being petty and selfish as well as brilliant. It's a compelling story which i make a point to watch every 4th of July and every election day. The cast is superb, and the production is terrific.

      This is a wonderful movie musical. Although not quite accurate historically, it's close enough. I would recommend this for family viewing.
