Saint Valentine dies a martyr, President Polk has his picture snapped, Al Capone sends his foes a violent Valentine's Day message, and Jackie Kennedy invites TV viewers inside the White House, all on this day.
1991: The movie "The Silence of the Lambs," starring Jodie Foster, Anthony Hopkins, Ted Levine and Scott Glenn, and directed by Johnathan Demme, premieres in theaters. The movie would go on gross more than $272 million at the box office and become only the third film to win Academy Awards in all the top five categories: Best Picture, Best Actress, Best Actor, Best Director and Best Writing (Adapted Screenplay).
