Jimmy Carter: Letterboxd President

Matt Novak wrote an article here outlining every movie Jimmy Carter watched while President of the USA. This is that list in the order he watched it.

Some tidbits:

Films Jimmy Carter watched more than once: Citizen Kane, Maltese Falcon, Manhattan, Annie Hall, Kramer vs Kramer, Lost Horizon, Rocky, Paper Moon, The In-Laws, Lost Horizon, 10 and Star Wars (4 times).

Directors who show up repeatedly: Billy Wilder, William Wyler, Delbert Mann, Michael Curtiz, Howard Hawks, John Ford, John Huston, Mel Brooks, Carl Reiner, Hal Ashby, Elia Kazan,…
