1920Franklin J Schaffner is born in Tokyo to American missionary parents.He'll eventually direct motion pictures likeThe Stripper,Boys from Brazil,andPlanet of the Apesand win the Oscar forPatton(1970).
1928International treasure Agnès Varda is born in Belgium. Anne Mariewrote about her work last yearso check that out.
