This Day in Film History:
April 2


1914:

Sir Alec Guinness, Oscar winner for The Bridge on the River Kwai, is born in Marlyebone, London, England. Younger audiences know him best as Obi-Wan Kenobi in Star Wars Episodes Four, Five and Six.

1968:

Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey debuts.

1974:

A streaker briefly interrupts the Academy Awards, dashing behind host David Niven while he is speaking. Niven, nervous about presenting, dashes off the brilliant ad-lib: "Isn't it fascinating to think that probably the only laugh that man will ever get in his life is by stripping off and showing his shortcomings."
