Fascinating to watch & how your emotions change with each face. Interesting too that beginning with Carter, they all have toothy grins, whereas all preceding presidents have a vague smile or no smile at all.

maybe something to do with teeth? I can remember years back reading something about The Queen Mother..vetting photos that showed too much of her teeth..

I find the sparkling white sameness of many of today's teeth a bit overpowering...I think it was Matt Damon in Saving Private Ryan..there he was ..a zillion days behind enemy lines..not a lot of toothpaste going down one would imagine...however....if memory serves me well..

there's a great opportunity for someone out there..to be a dental artist in film making...all this effort goes into costumes and sets...period this and period that...yet the teeth have to look 2009ish...weird methinks...

my family wait for my sigh or somesuch in a cinema if the teeth are over the top 2009 in a period film... Wink

here's a piece about the first George's teeth..I'd bought the story of the wooden teeth..
"Washington’s "Not-So-Wooden" Teeth.

The story of George Washington’s teeth, long thought to have been carved out of wood.
It’s amazing how this legend has survived. Here’s the true story:

President Washington lost his teeth at a relatively early age. He suffered from poor dental health throughout his younger years.
He had two sets of false teeth (dentures) made by the most prominent American dentist of his day, Dr. John Greenwood.
They were carved from the finest hippopotamus ivory and gold.
One of the sets was donated to the University of Maryland Dental School in Baltimore, the oldest dental college in the world.
The dental school in turn loaned one of the dentures to the Smithsonian in 1976 for a bicentennial exhibit.
The denture was stolen from a storage area of the Smithsonian (presumably for its gold content) and has never been recovered."
