July 4th, 2011: 1776 (1972)

Cast and Crew: Peter Stone, Sherman Edwards (Play); Jack L. Warner (Producer); William Daniels, Howard Da Silva, John Cullum, Blythe Danner

What It’s About: The story of the writing and signing of the Declaration of Independence, in musical form.

Why Watch it Today?: Generally I am not a fan of either American history or musicals, but somehow 1776 manages to be an educational historical musical that works, with fun songs, laughs, and great performances by the leads.

Where to Get ItLibraries, Netflix, iTunes, or Amazon
