Bruno Hauptmann is convicted in the Lindbergh baby case, France tests a nuclear weapon, and the last "Peanuts" comic strip runs, all on this day.
1972: The musical film "Cabaret," starring Liza Minnelli, Michael York and Joel Grey, and directed by Bob Fosse, premieres in theaters. The film would go on to earn eight Academy Awards out of 10 nominations, including Best Director, Best Actress for Minnelli, Best Supporting Actor for Grey and Best Cinematography. It was also nominated for Best Picture and Best Adapted Screenplay, losing out both times to "The Godfather." The movie holds the record for most Oscars won by a film that did not win the Best Picture award.
