Famous people born on this day include Marie-Laure Brunet and Max Pacioretty. In that special week of November people in US were listening to Bad Medicine by Bon Jovi. In UK First Time by Robin Beck was in the top 5 hits. Full Moon in Blue Water, directed by Peter Masterson, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1988 while The First Salute by Barbara W. Tuchman was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching The Bottom Line.
