Presidential History

Happy inauguration day! A list of every film I could find that featured a president of the United States. Let me know if you have any leads on other films that belong on this list.

Sorted by president and release date for now.. if I get more stamina may try to do full chronological order but that will prove tricky as these often span a lot of time.

President(s) appearing in the film listed in notes.
