Announcing the Hail to the Chief Blogathon!

This November, voters in America will elect the 45th President of the United States of America. From George Washington to Barack Obama, 43 men have held that office (Cleveland is counted twice). Movies and television have told the stories of many of those people, plus a few more conjured from writers’ imaginations.



From October 28 – November 1, it’s time to pick a president!


1. Feel free to write about any film or television show about the President of the United States of America, real or fictional. Or, write about how various films and TV shows present a single president.  The choice is yours.

2. One duplicate of each topic will be allowed.

3. To express your interest in participating in the blogathon, leave a comment on my blog, along with the name and URL of your blog, and the subject you wish to cover, or you can always register by email at: robinpruter@gmail.com. For those of you who wish to register by email, please be sure to include the name and URL of your blog, and the topic you wish to cover. Once you get confirmation, please spread the word about this blogathon by advertising the event on your blog. Below are a few banners, so grab yourself a banner, and blog away!

  2. What an awesome blogathon idea!! I will get back to you soon and let you know my topic.

    I’m glad I stopped by here! I wanted to let you know I just nominated you for a Liebster! http://phyllislovesclassicmovies.blogspot.com/2016/06/another-liebster-award.html

  3. I’d like to cover Franchot Tone’s portrayal of a U.S. president in Preminger’s 1962 film Advise & Consent if that works for you. My Finding Franchot blog is at http://www.franchottone.blogspot.com.

  6. Hi! I love to contribute something on FAIL SAFE (1964) if it’s still available.

    Once Upon a Screen – https://aurorasginjoint.com/


  7. Hi, lovely! I’d love to write about Young Mr. Lincoln (1939) if that’s alright! This is a great blogathon idea and I’d be happy to be a part of it!

  8. Hi! I’d like to review Wilson (1944), a film recommended by a fellow blogger but one that is regarded as a bomb. I think it’s time to see which is true.
    I’m Le from the bilingual blog Critica Retro (www.criticaretro.blogspot.com)

  9. Hello. Please put me down for 1776!

    My blog is Moon in Gemini: https://debravega.wordpress.com/

  10. Potential title (unless I come up with a better one): POTUS vs. the Martians.
    Featuring two astoundingly different approaches to alien invasions by the POTUS:
    Independence Day
    Mars Attacks!

    Whattya say?

    (It was either that or “The President According to Oliver Stone” and covering “W.”, “JFK” and “Nixon”, but this one sounds like it would be more fun…)

  11. Would it be at all possible to pick up “Olympus has Fallen”?
