Check out The Declaration of Independence. What's with that big signature from John Hancock?
According to history:
"The signature of John Hancock on the Declaration of Independence is the most flamboyant and easily recognizable of all. It is perhaps no surprise that the story of his part in the revolution is equally engaging. Few figures were more well known or more popular than John Hancock.Well done, John Hancock. You are one of my heroes:
On signing the Declaration he commented, "The British ministry can read that name without spectacles; let them double their reward."
It turned out to be a very popular movie.
The film had $5 million budget but ended up generating $240 million, or a rather good investment to say the least.
It was hilarious, specially the bride's family:
Here is a little history lesson from 1775:
"At about 5 a.m., 700 British troops, on a mission to capture Patriot leaders and seize a Patriot arsenal, march into Lexington to find 77 armed minutemen under Captain John Parker waiting for them on the town's common green. British Major John Pitcairn ordered the outnumbered Patriots to disperse, and after a moment's hesitation the Americans began to drift off the green.A year later, they met in Philadelphia and signed the Declaration of Independence.
Suddenly, the "shot heard around the world" was fired from an undetermined gun, and a cloud of musket smoke soon covered the green.
When the brief Battle of Lexington ended, eight Americans lay dead or dying and 10 others were wounded. Only one British soldier was injured, but the American Revolutionhad begun."
