1955: Debbie Reynolds and Eddie Fisher are married in a simple, short ceremony in Grossinger, New York. The marriage produced a son and a daughter, "Star Wars" actress Carrie Fisher, but ended in divorce in 1959 when Fisher and Reynolds' best friend, fellow actress Elizabeth Taylor, fell in love following the death of Taylor's then-husband Mike Todd.
