The events leading up to the american revolution and the signing of the declaration of independence are set to music.

"...unique musical...  Leonard Maltin's Movie & Video Guide

Editor's Note
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.)

USA Today
"...[William Daniels delivers] a wonderful performance as John Adams..." -- 3 out of 4 stars 09/11/1992 p.3D

Entertainment Weekly
"...Full of long, deliberate camera moves, this adaptation of the Broadway hit is about character....William Daniels hits a career high..." 08/02/2002 p.53

The Wall Street Journal 9 of 10
A wonderfully happy meeting of our distinct American history with that pecularly American dramatic form: the musical comedy.
