Still a good short documentary
1 June 2010 | by (Alexandria, VA, USA) – See all my reviews

I just saw this film yesterday (May 31, 2010) at the Independence Hall visitors center in Philadelphia. It's still a good short documentary, especially with the part at the end on the transfer of the Presidency from George Washington to John Adams. We take that for granted today. But back then, most successions were a result of heredity following the passing of a monarch, or by a not-so-peaceful coup.

However, it might be worthwhile to remake the film. Several viewers recognized the fact that the director (John Huston) and the narrator (E.G. Marshall) passed away many years ago. Even thought the script itself it still great, viewers might consider the film to be rather dated. In the least, the film needs be restored. It was fuzzy most of the way through.
