Bush (Republican), the UK Prime Minister was Margaret Thatcher (Conservative), Pope St John Paul II was leading the Catholic Church. Famous people born on this day include Henri Saivet and Mark Swanepoel. In that special week of October people in US were listening to Black Cat by Janet Jackson.

Jacob's Ladder, directed by Adrian Lyne, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1990 while The First Man In Rome by Colleen McCullough was one of the best selling books.
