1776    (1972) on TCM   2:30pm EST  July 4, 2020

TCM shows 1776 every year... and I always have it on.  I really need to see this this year.  I've always enjoyed the film because of three primary performers:

WILLIAM DANIELS, who is still with us  Smile, HOWARD DaSILVA and KEN HOWARD.  All the performances are wonderful. 

It was pointed out to me at TCM's forum that it's the only time of year TCM broadcasts the film!

when i was in high school we watched it they had the VHS they brought it i mean this was back in the 90's and they hadn't gotten a dvd player yet. i love a good musical but i thought 1776 was terrible.  though it does have one actor David Ford from the show Dark shadows   TeddyR

A fine movie, and a Broadway hit about the Revolution long  before Hamilton.

They had a thing in 1976 called the Freedom Train- which had some amazing artifacts. I seen Lincoln's hat! It was in Kalamazoo. I went with Ann Rock, the big- tit neighbor girl!

It took me years to figure out what bugged me about that dance number in 1776's song Cool Considerate Men, where the delegates promised to always go to the right (never to the left), and one night it came to me that the sentiments in the tune would be anachronistic, since the ideas of left and right in politics arose during the French Revolution, which was almost a decade and a half in the future from 1776. Boom! After realizing that the inner nagging departed like the demon Raghiga of the Sixth House after she was exorcized from me in New Orleans in 2001. (Yes, I'm kidding....actually the demon's name was Janet, and it was in San Juan.)
