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 - The Gold Rush
43 / 55

1925: Charlie Chaplin's comedy "The Gold Rush" premieres in Hollywood. The silent film, which Chaplin had declared several times was the one he wanted to be remembered for, features the famous scenes of Chaplin's "Little Tramp" cooking and eating his own shoe, down to the laces, and making dinner rolls impaled with forks "dance."
