Today in Movie History: November 23

It was a quiet day in movie history, but we still had a few notable releases. Elvis Presley serenaded Juliet Prowse in one of his better offerings, G.I. Blues, opening this day in 1960. More recently, we learned WAY more about Arnold Schwarzenegger’s lady parts than we ever wanted to know (as well as being reminded yet again how awesome Frank Langella is) in Ivan Reitman’s Junior in 1994. And James L. Brooks scored a major-league Oscar winner with Terms of Endearment — with trophies for Best Picture, Best Director, Best Screenplay, Best Actress Shirley MacLaine and Best Supporting Actor Jack Nicholson. Had Nicholson run in the lead actor category, it would have had the Big Five, a feat only three other movies thus far have accomplished.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
