1916 - In the year that Lillian Evans was born, the Battle of Verdun was fought from February through December. It was the largest and longest battle of World War I, lasting 303 days.

1925 - Lillian was just 9 years old when gangster Al "Scarface" Capone took over the Chicago bootlegging racket at age 26. Previously right hand man to boss Johnny Torrio, Capone took over when Torrio was shot and severely injured and decided to resign.

First released in December 1937, it was originally dubbed "Disney's Folly" but the premiere received a standing ovation from the audience.
