Kisses for My President was released in 1964, the same decade where women finally saw change, the decade that changed the course of how Americans would view women in the near future, and finally the decade that was full of promises for American women. The historical significance of Kisses for My President is why such a comical film was chosen for discussion. The motion picture, Kisses for My President, is about Leslie McCloud (Polly Bergen) whom becomes the first female president of the United States and her husband Thad McCloud (Fred MacMurray) who tries to adjust to the duties that were once reserved for a First Lady. As expected, President McCloud’s family begins to fall apart and the McCloud children begin to become troublesome, all while Leslie is handling the duties of a President. Leslie handles her career as President well throughout the film, but the film concludes with Madame President resigning due to an unexpected pregnancy.
