What if Eleanor Roosevelt could fly?

While Saturday Night Live has examined the historical perspectives of this weighty question, the cinematic possibilities are worth investigating. At the very least she would have figured largely in war propaganda films. I see her more as a character actor, rather than a lead.

TCM will be showing Sunrise at Campobello when Greer Garson is SOTM in March. Greer is a great Eleanor Roosevelt and was nominated for the Best Actress Oscar that year. She lost perhaps because Elizabeth Taylor, having been ill, was a sentimental choice (although it was a very strong year for the ladies). Had Eleanor flown in the film, then Greer would certainly have won the Oscar.
