Reviews
Mine: Good, but over long, musical adaptation. Great music. Good family fun.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: America's first Congress in struggle for independence from Britain provides framework for this unique musical by Sherman Edwards and Peter Stone. Almost all of the original Broadway cast remain, with Daniels as John Adams and da Silva as Benjamin Franklin leading the pack. Laserdisc version runs approx. 180m. , with many elements director Hunt was forced to cut from theatrical release, including one entire number, "Cool Considerate Men." Panavision.
