Over the recent years our founding fathers of the USA come under the handling of the writings of revisionist of American history. One who has received the worst of the revisionism has been Ben Franklin who went from a grandfatherly type of inventive genius to as a degenerate evil mastermind. The one who has withstood the test of time is John Adams. He was seen in the beginning as a patriot but not one that was well liked. Here is a clip from one of the best musicals ever produced, 1776, that shows off Mr. Adams personality and patriotism. The part is well played by William Daniels and better known as Mr. Feeney from the TV show "Boy Meets World."
You can get the DVD of the movie from Amazon.com

Over at Classic Television Showbiz They have the episode of Break the Bank with Micky Dolenz as one of the celebrity guest. Below is the segment with the only 2 questions that were asked to Micky. This was done some time around the Dolenz, Jones, Boye and Hart era. Probably at the beginning of that one and at the end of Micky's personal era where he was always a celebrity guest. I never did see Micky during his celebrity guest era so I was pleased to see this episode. If you want to see more go to Classic Television Showbiz.
