He was released in 1962 after 1 year, 9 months and 10 days in prison.

1977 - At the age of 38 years old, Michael was alive when 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.
