Description
"A wonderfully happy meeting of our distinct American history with that peculiarly American dramatic forum: the musical comedy." -Wall Street Journal

1776 is a delightful musical celebration of the founding of the United States of America based on the award-winning Broadway production. The story centers around the familiar historical characters as they organize a movement for independence from Mother England: the tough unyielding John Adams (William Daniels); the charming and pragmatic Benjamin Franklin (Howard Da Silva); the brilliant young Thomas Jefferson (Ken Howard), who is chosen to write the Declaration of Independence even as he longs for the company of his new bride Martha (Blythe Danner); and the rest of the Continental Congress. All events lead up to that most significant date July 4, 1776 when the Declaration was signed. Wonderful songs combined with history make this excellent family viewing.

                The movie, while entertaining, is based on fact. I reviewed all of the men who singed the Deceleration of Independence. These men gave up fame and fortune to form a new government. The seeds of the civil war were planted by this congress. John Adams was at his best and so was Thomas Jefferson. All of the men who signed the deceleration were well educated and principled.

                  Good overall story about 1776 ---very entertaining musical incorporated with theme. Some of the language a little too strong for me. This is more of an adult movie....

                    Every year I make this film part of my Independence Day celebration; to remember and appreciate our Founding Fathers and take pride in being an American. 1776 is a great film!

                      What wonderful music and insight into the first Congress, and beginnings of this nation. Things have not really changed all that much. I have loved this film through the years and I especially enjoyed the restored director's cut. Everyone should view this look into the past, and learn from it.
