The USS Maine explodes mysteriously in Havana Harbor, the teddy bear is born, President Franklin D. Roosevelt survives an assassination attempt, and Jeffrey Dahmer is found guilty, all on this day.
1985: The coming of age comedy-drama "The Breakfast Club," starring Judd Nelson, Emilio Estevez, Ally Sheedy, Molly Ringwald and Anthony Michael Hall, and directed by John Hughes, premieres in theaters. The movie would go on to earn $51 million at the box office and is considered one of the greatest high school films of all time, as well as one of Hughes' most memorable and recognizable works.
