Hollywoodland.And other anniversaries today

On this day in history as it relates to the movies...

1793Jean-Paul Marat is born in Prussia.Goes on to become a famous political activist and journalist during the French Revolution.His murder is dramatized in the famous playMarat/Sade(also known asThe Persecution and Assassination of Jean-Paul Marat as Performed by the Inmates of the Asylum of Charenton Under the Direction of the Marquis de Sadewhich was made into a film in 1968 starriing Patrick Macgee and Ian Richardson.I once saw a production of this play in Harlemand it was just fascinating.
1863
British Egyptologist,"Grandmother of Wicca"and proto-feminist Margaret Alice Murray is born in India.I only mention this because so many fascinating,influential and controversial women exist in history but we only ever get biopics of men.Why doesn't she have a biopic?It could be great.
1923The iconic HOLLYWOOD sign is officially dedicated in California.It originally says "Hollywoodland"but the "land"is dropped twenty-six years later.
