Films[edit]

It'll be a while before I can really shift through the IMDb pages, so I might not be able to get too much done on this page for at least little while. --YankeeDoodle14 22:21, 27 October 2006 (UTC)

IMDb Refinements[edit]

I've refined the former list to sort the items into movies, miniseries, and TV movies. YankeeDoodle14

Creased Comics[edit]

Does the video that Brad Neely made have a place in this list? I know it's pretty silly (or hilarious. It just depends) but it is a cultural representation of Washington. It's also pretty popular. According to its YouTube site, its got well over 2 million views. Just a thought. Nicklefish 01:27, 20 March 2007 (UTC)


Three centuries?[edit]

Changed first sentence from "George Washington has inspired artistic and cultural works for nearly three centuries."
Three centuries ago would be 1708, George Washington was born 1732, presumably did not "inspire" any "artistic or cultural works" until he reached adulthood and a certain degree of fame, George Washington has a picture of him with the caption "The earliest known portrait of Washington, painted in 1772 by Charles Willson Peale..." -- 201.17.36.246 (talk) 07:06, 13 July 2008 (UTC)
