1926 - Josephine Baker: The black Venus

On October 2, 1925, she opened in Paris at the Théâtre des Champs-Élysées, where she became an instant success for her erotic dancing and for appearing practically nude on stage. After a successful tour of Europe, she reneged on her contract and returned to France to star at the Folies Bergères, setting the standard for her future acts. She performed the Danse sauvage, wearing a costume consisting of a skirt made of a string of artificial bananas. Baker's success coincided (1925) with the Exposition des Arts Décoratifs, which gave birth to the term "Art Deco", and also with a renewal of interest in ethnic forms of art, including African. Baker represented one aspect of this fashion. In later shows in Paris she was often accompanied on stage by her pet cheetah, Chiquita, who was adorned with a diamond collar. The cheetah frequently escaped into the orchestra pit, where it terrorized the musicians, adding another element of excitement to the show.

1954 - The Myth: Marilyn Monroe in Korea

Marilyn Monroe (June 1st, 1926 – August 5th, 1962) was a 20th century American actress. Her sizzling screen presence and premature death would make her a perennial sex symbol and later a pop icon. She played a variety of roles in many films. One of her most famous films is “The Seven Year Itch” which is a 1955 movie directed by Billy Wilder. The film was based on a play that starred Tom Ewell (but not Marilyn). It cost $1.8 million, a large budget for a movie in those days. The high price was partly incurred by Marilyn often fluffing her lines and requiring many retakes. This was because she had her mind elsewhere -- her marriage to Joe DiMaggio ended during the film shoot. The film, however, contains one of the most famous images of Marilyn Monroe when her dress is billowing up from an updraft from a grate.

1958 - Elvis Presley: the king of Rock and Roll, arriving in Germany

Elvis Aaron Presley (January 8th, 1935 – August 16th, 1977), also known as The King of Rock and Roll, or as just simply The King, was an American singer who had an immeasurable effect on world culture. He started his career under the name the Hillbilly Cat and was soon nicknamed Elvis the Pelvis because of his sexually suggestive performance style. On January 20th, 1958, Presley received a draft notice for a 2-year duty with the United States Army. He received no special treatment and served in Germany as an ordinary soldier and was honorably discharged on March 5th, 1960. Many have since wondered why an only child – by then the sole support of his parents and grandmother – was drafted during peacetime, since his services were clearly not critical for the defense of his country. It has long been suspected that Elvis" draft notice was either politically instigated to shunt his "dangerous, race-mixing" influence, or encouraged by his manager in order to keep the increasingly world-wise Southern lad under his thumb.

1965 - A Royal Medal for the Beatles: the Beatles visited Buckingham Palace to receive their MBE medals from the Queen

The Beatles were the most influential popular music group of the rock era, and the most successful, with global sales exceeding 1.1 billion records. Few artists of any sort have achieved a combination of popular success, critical acclaim and broad cultural influence that rivals that of The Beatles. The Beatles were John Lennon (rhythm guitar), Paul McCartney (bass), George Harrison (lead guitar), and Ringo Starr (drums), all from Liverpool, Merseyside, in England. Lennon and McCartney were the principal songwriters. For most of their career, their records were produced by George Martin. The Beatles were among the first non-establishment artists to be awarded honors at Buckingham Palace. In October, 1965, at Buckingham Palace, The Beatles were named Members of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire. Beatle fans stormed the gates of the Palace in a hysterical effort to see the Queen honor their idols. Elizabeth decorated some 182 persons at the investiture, which was one of the ten that take place throughout the year. Ringo cut his hair; they all wore lounge suits instead of the more formal morning coats Inside the ballroom, waiting for the Queen to arrive, some 50 other recipients of royal honors asked the Beatles for autographs. One old man said, "I want it for my daughter. I can"t see what she sees in you." They later confessed to smoking cannabis in the palace lavatories with their luxurious fittings, although several members of the band have since dismissed this story as a fabrication. First concert from the Beatles: 17-08-1960
