In the capsule today...
We find a movie about a street-smart Detroit cop, who comes to California to solve his friend’s murder. Sylvester Stallone was originally considered for the part, but Eddie Murphy landed the lead… in Beverly Hills Cop.
We find the final episode of "Captain Kangaroo,” after a 29 year run on CBS.
And we find a song on the radio by Dead or Alive. The record company hated the song… and the band had to take out a loan to record it. Still unenthused after the recording, the band was also forced to fund the video themselves. The song became a hit worldwide.
What is the year? (answer below).
The year... 1984!
