Ken Howard who plays Thomas Jefferson previously played the author of the Declaration of Independence in the original cast of the Broadway musical "1776" and then reprised the role in the movie version. See more »
Running less than 30 minutes, this short documentary type movie has been screened thousands of times in Philadelphia at the town hall / historical state house where the Constitutional Congress was originally held. Whether you agree or disagree with the style the story is told or whether or not you think the founding Fathers felt the way they did, you will agree that this "movie" is too short. Like an appetizer, you are hoping for a larger portion to this history. Ken Howard returns again from his role as Thomas Jefferson in 1776, to portray Thomas Jefferson once again. The tall, red headed English actor is perfect as the writer to the Declaration of Independence. A familiar face to the cast, his addition adds to the movie's uniqueness as well as it its pride.
