Some of the greatest movies ever made were based on the respective lives of the most powerful Chief Executive in the world.

Below is a chart showing the number of film portrayals for each U.S. President (data is from IMDB and does not include documentaries or films where the President plays himself).

Though you may have guessed which man was depicted the most, only one American President has the honor of never appearing on an actor's filmography.

See the results below:
