Theodore Roosevelt-Shall We Prepare?

Post by Kitty » Sat Apr 01, 2017 7:39 pm

Roosevelt shaking his cane at America. Without these intertitles, you'd think that he was scolding America for something. Perhaps not buying enough Teddy bears? Anyway, here's the real summary:

Two sequences of TR: Sequence 1: views of TR walking onto the porch of Sagamore Hill, Oyster Bay, N.Y., facing the camera, and then speaking on military preparedness during WWI; Sequence 2: views of TR sitting at his desk in the Metropolitan Magazine office in New York City and speaking with a man who may be Carl Hovey, editor of the magazine.

This is the first footage I've seen of TR. I've seen some Edison footage of McKinley (before his assassination—some of his funeral proceedings were also filmed), and also of Wilson. I believe Coolidge was the first sound film. I have that one somewhere in my iTunes library.

Interesting! I have not heard Coolidge, or seen footage of the other presidents you mention.
