"...[William Daniels delivers] a wonderful performance as John Adams..." -- 3 out of 4 stars
Entertainment Weekly - 08/02/2002
"...Full of long, deliberate camera moves, this adaptation of the Broadway hit is about character....William Daniels hits a career high..."
This acclaimed film version of Peter Stone's Pulitzer Prize-winning musical, which was one of the last big-budget studio musicals, stars William Daniels (TV's Saint Elsewhere) as John Adams and Howard Da Silva as Ben Franklin. A rollicking, anachronistic treatment of the creation of the Declaration of Independence, with the American forefathers conducting themselves with uncharacterstic--and comical--indignity. Academy Award Nominations: Best Cinematography (Harry Stradling, Jr.)
