"The Raven" is first published, baseball and football induct their first hall of fame classes, the Gulf War fighting takes to the ground, and President George W. Bush coins the phrase "Axis of Evil," all on this day.
1959: The Walt Disney animated movie "Sleeping Beauty" premieres in theaters. The 16th animated feature in the Walt Disney Animated Classics series, it would be the last fairy tale produced by Walt Disney due to its initial box office disappointment, having made $7.7 million at the box office as compared to its $6 million production cost. The studio did not return to the genre until well after Disney's death with the release of 1989's "The Little Mermaid."
