Independence Day 2017
Director Peter H. Hunt In Person!
Before there was 'Hamilton,' there was 1776, a 1972 adaptation of the Broadway musical that found our country's founding fathers singing their way to the signing of the Declaration of Independence. We approach America's Independence Day with this patriotic favorite in a brand new restored version on DCP. Discussion following with director Peter H. Hunt, moderated by Susan King.
4k Restoration!

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.
