1984: The sci-fi action film "The Terminator," starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, Michael Biehn, and Linda Hamilton and directed by James Cameron, premieres in theaters. Though not expected to be either a commercial or critical success, "The Terminator" would top the American box office for two weeks, earn $78.3 million, establish Schwarzenegger as a star and spawn three sequels and a TV series.
