Time Capsule/February 7, 1964

Posted on

At The Movies, Peter Sellers (right) proves to be a comedic triple threat in Stanley Kubrick’s biting political satire Dr. Strangelove. In Music, the Singing Nun’s self-titled LP continues its blessedly strong run atop the Billboard chart. In Bookstores, John F. Kennedy’s Profiles in Courage is a posthumous No. 1 on the Publishers Weekly nonfiction list. AND In The News, the trial of white supremacist Byron De La Beckwith for the murder of civil rights leader Medgar Evers ends in a hung jury. Beckwith was eventually convicted in 1994.
