It was Wednesday, under the sign of Leo (see birth chart on August 7, 1974). The US president was Richard Nixon (Republican). Famous people born on this day include Michael Shannon (actor) and Dana Dawson. In that special week of August people in US were listening to Feel Like Makin' Love by Roberta Flack. In UK When Will I See You Again by The Three Degrees was in the top 5 hits. The Longest Yard, directed by Robert Aldrich, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1974 while If Beale Street Could Talk by James Baldwin was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching The Capone Investment. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Gran Trak 10 or Spasim.
But much more happened that day: find out below..
