May 9 Vertigo Movie Alfred Hitchcock Premiere San Fransisco

What happened on May 9?

Vertigo, directed by Alfred Hitchcock, premiered in San Francisco on this day in 1958.
When hearing the word “Vertigo”, do you rather think of this movie or U2’s hit song with the intense voice of tomorrow’s birthday boy, Bono Vox?

Songs are just such powerful triggers of the brain. We bet that you can easily name 2 or 3 hit songs by Billy Joel (*1949), can’t you?

It’s much more difficult for the brain to recall specific visuals than sounds. Even top performers like Rosario Dawson (*1979) will have to put on an incredible display to beat the power of the voice. Fascinating.

Sheer power of the body and mind made iconic Detroit Red Wings ice hockey player
Steve Yzerman (*1965) rise to the hall of fame.

Talking about power; let’s raise a glass to celebrate Adam Opel (1837), founder of the automobile brand named after him. Everywhere apart from the Commonwealth, that is… because why not call it “Vauxhall”, right?

Maybe archaeologist Howard Carter (*1874) can make some sense of it all, with his knowledge of ancient cultures…
