<P style="margin-bottom: 0.0001pt; line-height: 150%;" class="MsoNormal"> The Leading Man analyzes the evolution and the significance of the interaction between Hollywood and Washington to trace the history of the cinematic presidential image. Burton W. Peretti shows that traditional practices of presidential image making go back to George Washington, and then places the fourteen presidents of the cinematic era, from Herbert Hoover to Barack Obama, at the center of the story. He demonstrates how movies have been the main force in promoting image and drama over the substance of governing.
