Did You Know?

Kelsey Grammer voiced the part of Benedict Arnold in the A&E documentary mini-series, "The American Revolution", reading off-screen extracts from Arnold's letters and papers as Arnold was portrayed on-screen by another actor.See more »
Factual errors: At the beginning of the movie, Arnold is shown to be on foot when he is wounded at the battle of Bemis Heights. He was, in fact on horseback. His leg was broken by a combination of the shot and the weight of his falling horse.See more »
George Washington:Not one soldier has died so that I may be named 'Dictator'!See more »

a fine historical drama, 9 September 2003
Author: dtucker86 from Germany

The name Benedict Arnold is synonomous with "traitor" today. Being this the case, it is hard to believe that during the early part of the Revelution, General Arnold was looked upon as a true patriot and hero. General Washington compares him to Hannibal in the beginning. We see him leading his troops heroically on the battlefield and saying "God Bless America". Arnold was actually horribly wounded in the leg by a huge musket ball and the opening of this film shows the horrifying conditions of Revelutionary War hospitals where amputation without anesthetic was the only solution. Aiden Quinn is probably best known for his role in An Early Frost, the first tv movie ever to talk about AIDS. He does a fine job here portraying Arnold. Was he a hero who just went the wrong way? What made this seemingly honorable man turn into the most infamous traitor in history? Was it greed, ego or his wife's ambition that did it. I don't know if the real Arnold ever really regretted his treason, but this film suggests that he did. As a soldier in the Army, it appalled me in the end when they showed Arnold dressed in a British uniform! Kelsey Grammar does his level best as George Washington. However, he will always be that guy on Cheers to me. He does a fine hammy job though. I think my favorite part was in the end when he found out about Arnold's treason, he says "From the tallest tree....LETS HANG THE SON OF A BITCH!!!!" I figure that is exactly how the real General Washington acted.
