This film covers the ENTIRE Revolutionary War! It is virtually impossible to detail all of the events in the film, but Marion Davies as Janice is right in the middle of all the action. You see the Boston tea party, Washington crossing the Deleware, the battles, and even the ride of Paul Revere. W.C. Fields plays a prison guard in a comical scene with Marion. This is a long film, nearly as long as the war itself, but W.R. Hearst was pleased even if audiences yawned.
