||Synopsis: The film version of the Broadway musical comedy of the same name. In the days leading up to July 4, 1776, Continental Congressmen John Adams and Benjamin Franklin coerce Thomas Jefferson into writing the Declaration of Independence as a delaying tactic as they try to persuade the American colonies to support a resolution on independence. As George Washington sends depressing messages describing one military disaster after another, the businessmen, landowners and slave holders in Congress all stand in the way of the Declaration, and a single "nay" vote will forever end the question of independence. Large portions of spoken and sung dialog are taken directly from the letters and memoirs of the actual participants. Written by Dave Heston <[email protected]>

1776 is a masterful representation of the emotion, logic and debate,
to the critical creation and signing of the Declaration of Independence.
captures, beautifully and subtly, the moment the colonies crossed the
one by one, to leave England's rule.
The writing is superb, and the direction is perfection itself. The music
and lyrics add a bold exclamation point, for they range from funny to
serious, simple to complex, in the richness of sound and appropriateness
Leading the charge is the cantankerous character of John Adams (William
Daniels). It is nothing less than a remarkable and brilliant portrayal,
probably one of the most difficult, and yet one of the best ever played.
Daniels walks a very fine line, depicting the essence of a man who grates
his friends and foes, yet quickly pulls the audience to his side. You
help but feel the desperation, frustration and passion of Adams, as he
to persuade and pull reluctant and loyalist colonial representatives to
Frank Da Silva's Ben Franklin is equal to the challenge of the quality
performance given by Daniels. Franklin is certainly the more popular
figure among the characters, but nevertheless has many complexities,
expertly brought out by the quality writing and Da Silva's fine skill as
actor of high caliber.
It is hard to write a review of such a fine film, without mentioning all
magnificent performances by a remarkably talented cast. It is far easier,
and much more pleasurable, to simply view the film. Pay attention to the
lighting and choreography. Watch the meeting room transform from a rather
plain space, to one of intensity, as the room goes from static and flat,
lively and dramatic. It follows the mood of the film, as the issue of
independence is moved from a side issue, to weave its way to the
The oversized calendar reminds one of the ticking of a clock, as the days
move inevitably to July 4th. And while we know the outcome of the events,
it is too easy to be drawn into the process, and become captured by the
suspense of those last six weeks leading to the formation of a new nation.
The tally board, which records the votes of the colonies, also looms large
on the wall. The movement from left to right, for and against
also adds to the suspense and drama of the film.
There are lighthearted moments, and witty banter, among the characters, as
one would expect. But there are surprises too. And the viewer gets to
an amazing transformation of the irritable Adams to a much softer person,
when he corresponds with Abigail. Please add 1776, with confidence, to
list of must-see movies. I think it is as fresh today as it was 30-years
ago. It is time for a film re-release, or at least a revival on Broadway,
but since such things rarely happen, do yourself a favor and rent or buy
movie. Personally, I think it was the finest of its kind. Can one rate
higher than a ten? Would that I could, for it deserves it. Kudos to the
writer, director, and amazing cast. It was, for many, their very best
performances, both behind the scenes and in front of the camera.
