So what do the TV series Benson, Huff, Northern Exposure, St. Elsewhere, and The White Shadow have in common? They all star or starred actors who also appeared in the film 1776.

James Noble (Benson) plays Rev. John Witherspoon of NewJersey. Blythe Danner (Huff) plays Martha Jefferson. John Cullum (Northern Exposure) plays Edwin Rutledge of South Carolina. William Daniels (St. Elsewhere) plays John Adams. Ken Howard (The White Shadow) plays Thomas Jefferson. (Pictured, incidentally, are Daniels, Danner, and Howard Da Silva, who plays Benjamin Franklin in the film.)

Very few of you got the flag-waving connection…

(I’ll be totally honest. I didn’t get this one either — this one is all Gary. As I mentioned, I thought it was very difficult, perhaps even too difficult, but 16 of you Yankee Doodle Dandies proved me wrong. Yet again. Sigh. They grow up so fast…)
