Abstract

Represented much or more than the rest of the American Presidents of all times, the figure of President Ulysses S. Grant has not counted so far with a large predicament in film studies, despite it have been erected, with identical continuity, a singular icon, both the main virtues and the particular charism of the American people. Many have been the films and television series that have portrayed the irregular path of this leader, so renowned for its capabilities for military strategy as reviled by cases of corruption that splashed the last years of his mandate. Through the narrative, aesthetic analysis and Dialogic of their essential film appearances, this study combines and put in value, for the first time, all perspectives on a historical character whose flaws and excellencies wished to combine the seventh art, setting it up, with the passing of decades, as a unique and legend-edged symbol.
