Movie of the Week: 1776.

It’s getting up to the July Fourth weekend, so we remove the modern heroes of Apollo 13 and bring in the ancestral heroes of 1776. I saw the Broadway revival starring Brent Spiner as John Adams, and he did fine with it – still, this is the one that I grew up with.

    One of my absolute favorites! I saw the same Broadway revival and loved it. But, the movie is what I grew up on and watch again every July 4th! Drives my husband crazy!
