Synopsis
The first of prolific writer John Jakes' seven-part American Bicentennial series was adapted into a film swashbuckler in which the illegitimate son of a French nobleman fights to regain his rightful inheritance amid the dangers and intrigues when American colonists were overthrowing British rule. This fictionalized account of the Revolutionary War period follows him from Europe to the New World where he encounters Benjamin Franklin, Paul Revere, Samuel Adams and other notables. The leading role was given to newcomer Andrew Stevens (actress Stella Stevens' son), with support from a dozen or so seasoned veterans. Emmy Award nominations went to Loyd S. Papez for his art direction and to Richard Friedman for his set decoration.
