  THIS IS JAN LEIGHTON. And Jan Leighton. And so on. It's the face that has launched absolutely no ships, but a lot of great photographs, T.V. commercials and shows. If you don't like the way he looks, he'll look some other way.
By the way, Jan is in the Guiness Book of World Records having professionally performed 3372 historical notables which have garnered a modest number of awards.
  What goosebumped Jan's goosebumps was filming as: George Washington opening the General's own camp chest in Mt. Vernon, VA... Abe Lincoln in Springfield, Ill... Mark Twain shooting pool at his home in Hartford... Edison sitting in his Menlo Park workshop... Andy Jackson in his Nashville Hermitage... Christopher Columbus in Puerto Rico... Kit Carson in Bents Old Fort, Colorado... both Ben Franklin and Thomas Jefferson inside Independence Hall, Philadelphia.
