I return to to Rob Kelly's Film and Water Podcast to discuss the film version of the Broadway hit, 1776. Starring William Daniels at John Adams, Howard Da Silva as Ben Franklin, Ken Howard as Thomas Jefferson, and Blythe Danner (Gwyneth Paltrow's mom; can you tell from the cheekbones?) as Martha Jefferson. A musical about the writing of The Declaration of Independence? You bet! Actually, it's about something we as Americans never learn about in school and seldom give any thought to: the argument over whether the colonies should even separate from Great Britain. Independence was far from a forgone conclusion during that long, hot summer in Philadelphia. Check it out here.
