Whenever a silent film producer needed someone to portray George Washington, chances were good that the actor employed was Joseph Kilgour, a tall Canadian veteran, who had starred on the stage in such plays as Arizona and The Easiest Way. Kilgour, who portrayed the first president in Washington Under the British Flag (1909), The Battle Cry of Peace (1915), The Dawn of Freedom (1916), and Janice Meredith (1924), also took a stab at Louis XVI in My Lady's Slipper (1916) and General Von Bissing in The Fall of the Hohenzollerns (1919). He retired in 1926.
