Theodore Roosevelt courted the press in a way that no other president had before. A media magazine of the era, The Moving Picture World, wrote that “Roosevelt “is such an overmastering personality that we go the length of expressing the hope that moving pictures of him may be preserved in safe custody for future reference.”
