President Nixon himself reportedly insisted that a central pro-British number sung by Continental Congress be removed from the theatrical cut of this musical interpretation of the signing of the Declaration of Independence. The footage was long considered lost, but a mislabeled negative was discovered in the Sony vault and the film was restored to its star spangled glory.
