President Obama Raids His DVD Collection For British Prime Minister

In the world of international politics, ceremonial gifts representing the various nations are often the drug of choice for visiting dignitaries. From ornamental swords to antique furniture, a US president can rake in dozens of items over the course of their administration.

Britisn Prime Minister Gordon Brown's trip to America this week was no different, and he brought along some goodies. Specifically, Brown presented the Prez with a pen holder constructed from wood used in the Victorian era anti-slave ship HMS Gannet. But that wasn't all: according to the Daily Mail, Obama also received the ship's certificate, a first edition biography of Winston Churchill and an assortment of high-value toys for his children.

So what did Gordon get in return? For his sake, we hope he really, really enjoyed "Star Wars." That's because Obama gave his English counterpart a basket containing 25 American films, ranging from "E.T." to "Some Like It Hot." It's worth noting that American DVDs (known as Region 1) won't play on British DVD players (known as Region 2), so we hope they brought along the PAL versions. For a full list of films now in possession by the Gordon household, head after the jump.
