Discussion following the film with director Peter H. Hunt.
1972, Sony Repertory, 169 min, USA, Dir: Peter H. Hunt
Director Peter H. Hunt’s inspired, faithful adaptation of the 1969 Broadway smash. Who would have thought the story of the signing of the Declaration of Independence could be so fascinating as a movie and a musical? John Adams (William Daniels), Benjamin Franklin (Howard Da Silva) and Thomas Jefferson (Ken Howard) try to woo the rest of the colonies toward independence from Mother England. Many of the actors here were in the original Broadway production and their ease in the roles shows on the screen.
