The states quickly ratified the Amendment and it was signed into law on July 1st by President Richard Nixon.

1977 - When she was 69 years old, on May 25th, Star Wars premiered in theaters. Eventually, it became the highest-grossing film of all time - until E.T. surpassed it a few years later. It was an immediate hit with theatergoers.
