On This Day: Marilyn Mania and Sarah Connor x 3

May your 19th be beautiful.

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

1536Anne Boleyn is beheaded.Her tragedy is later reenacted by hundreds of actresses on tv,stage and film including Natalie Portman,Vanessa Redgrave,Helena Bonham Carter,and Genevieve Bujold (Oscar nomination).
1836Cynthia Ann Parker is kidnapped in Texas during an Indian raid after her family is slaughtered.That's a tough break but not many people get to live on in history through multiple classics albeit under pseudonyms like "Debbie Edwards"(Natalie Wood inThe Searchers) and "Stands With Fist"(Mary McDonnell inDances With Wolves).
1925Malcolm X is born.67 years later Denzel Washington wins his second Oscar playing him (Shut up!This is our preferred version of history because Al Pacino inScent of a Woman.Ugh,really?)
1941Nora Ephron is born spewing witticisms.

1958Attack of the 50 Foot Womanis released in movie theaters.
1962Marilyn Monroe,who looms larger than 50 Feet in the American consciousness,sings happy birthday to President John F Kennedy
1978Thank God It's Fridayreleased.Out-discoed in collective disco-movie memories byCan't Stop the Music,two years later.
1982Rebecca Hall is born.Remains underappreciated 34 years later

1984It is a veryverybad day to be named "Sarah Connor"in Los Angeles.Unless you're unlisted.[src]
1989Legendary bad movieRoad Houseopens in theaters
1992Sam Smith is born.24 years later he tortures global audiences with an off-key rendition of a song no one likes and Hollywood hands him the Oscar -anything to make him stop.
1999Star Wars: the Phantom Menaceopens in theaters which is something like discovering a razor blade in your Halloween candy.Jar Jar Binks is the razor blade.Nostalgia is the candy.
2017Baywatch: The Movieopens.God help us all.

and finally...


2154Jake Sully will arrive in his wheelchair on Pandora and meet hisAvatar.Just in time for James Cameron to be cryogenically unfrozen and announce that he's starting production onAvatar 2andAvatar 3.For real this time,promise.
