A Complete List of What Bill Clinton Watched While In Office

A Complete List of What Bill Clinton Watched While In Office
bill-clinton

The most unexpected film fan ever.

It’s safe to assume that most Americans have at some point imagined themselves as the President of the United States.




What would it be like? So, it’s not too surprising that people are interested in what the actual President does with his spare time in the White House. This list was originally acquired by the site Gizmondo using the Freedom of Information Act and shows not only what Bill Clinton watched, but also the dates and everything. In the past it has been the books a President has been reading that get coverage. For instance, when“From Russia With Love” appeared on John F. Kennedy’s reading list, the producers of the James Bond series decided that it should be the next story to make into a film.

It’s not surprising given the many films that have screened at the White House for the President to watch. However it is amusing, to say the least, to imagine Bill Clinton sitting down to watch some of these. Then again it’s odd to think of him being a fan of his reportedly favorite movie, “High Noon.” So this obviously is just the current films he watched while in office as it has been reported several times that he apparently watched “High Noon” 17 times (some reports list even more than that) while in office. Now that’s a true fan. Fun Fact, “High Noon” is said to be the most requested film to be viewed by Presidents in office. In the grand scheme of things… a silly bit of “news”, but fun for movie lovers to compare themselves and their viewing habits to the President. Enjoy! Although, now I’m wondering what future lists we’ll undoubtedly see.

About The Author

Eric

Eric grew up with a simple childhood. At age 11 a six fingered man murdered his father in front of his eyes, while his mother died defending him from an attack from a sharptooth, then an evil toon dropped a piano from 15 stories onto his brother's head and then on top of all of that while on the job he was brutally shot up and left for dead but was rebuilt as a robotic cop to get his revenge. ...Oooorr maybe he just watched a lot of movies growing up and got really into them. From a young age Eric realized learning things like science, math, people's names etc. took some real effort but could easily remember practically all the dialog/plot details from a random movie he watched on tv years ago. He knew from a young age that he wanted to make movies and never strayed from that. Going to college to get an education in film production and working on movie sets whenever it can be fit into his schedule. Get him into a room full of people he doesn't know and over time you may eventually get him to open up but just mention some movies and he'll talk for hours, never afraid to (respectfully) argue with fellow movie nerds. Now he puts that love and energy toward writing for FilmFad.com.

While not a fan of Clinton, the guy did get a lot of stuff done, and I’m surprised he was able to find time to watch so many movies. Maybe he multi-tasked while watching.

Very interesting.
