Monday August 11, 1975

US date format: 8/11/1975, UK date format: 11/8/1975

It was Monday, under the sign of Leo (see birth chart on August 11, 1975). The US president was Gerald Ford (Republican). Famous people born on this day include Asma al-Assad and Natasha Bell. In that special week of August people in US were listening to Jive Talkin' by Bee Gees. In UK I Can't Give You Anything (But My Love) by The Stylistics was in the top 5 hits. Kidnap Syndicate, directed by Fernando Di Leo, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1975 while The Ascent Of Man by J. Bronowski was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Floris von Rosemund. If you liked videogames you were probably playing pedit5 or Gun Fight.
But much more happened that day: find out below..
