Big Budget Hollywood History

Mainly a Marion Davies vehicle as she helps Paul Revere find out that the British are coming and helps George Washington find out the location of the British troops when he crossed the Delaware to attack Trenton.

Very nice costumes for both men and woman, but the action sequences (Paul Revere's ride and Washington crossing the Delaware) are too long and the love story does not generate much heat.
