The toothbrush is patented, Christmas becomes a federal holiday, the first helicopter takes off, President Kennedy delivers his "Ich bin ein Berliner" speech, the first UPC is scanned, and Elvis leaves the stage for the last time, all on this day.

OTD June 26 - Taylor and Burton
23 / 55

1974: Elizabeth Taylor's fifth divorce, from fellow actor Richard Burton, becomes official after 10 years of marriage. Sixteen months later Burton would become Taylor's sixth husband after the couple remarried on Oct. 10, 1975. The second marriage wouldn't last though, as the couple soon separated and divorced again less than a year later. Taylor would go on to marry -- and divorce -- two more times in her lifetime. Taylor and Burton are seen here in the 1965 film "The Sandpiper."
