Theodore Roosevelt: His Life and Times on Film

When you think of President Theodore Roosevelt, you might not think of many major film appearances. He certainly wasn't in any dramatic motion pictures, but his everyday life was chronicled on a large scale by several motion picture companies. From the Spanish-American War in 1898 to his death in 1919, this collection from the American Memory project at the Library of Congress offers up 87 films from the Theodore Roosevelt Association Collection. These include views of contemporary world figures, politicians, monarchs, and friends. First-time visitors should check out the two featured essays: "T.R. On Film" and "Sound Recordings of T.R.'s Voice." The Timeline is a great way to navigate all of the films, and visitors can also browse the collection by title or subject. Two films that shouldn't be missed are "Terrible Teddy, the Grizzly King" from 1901 and "TR with Rough Rider Friends."
