On this episode of This Day In History, Tony and Armand express their disgust with Titanic and the fact that on this day in 1998, it became the first film to gross over $1 billion worldwide. Although this film gained lots of popularity, the guys have never been able to get behind it. On this day in 1917, the text of the Zimmermann Telegram is reprinted in newspapers all across the United States. German foreign secretary, Arthur Zimmerman, was caught by British intelligence sending messages to Mexico in an effort to gain their support if the United States and Germany were to go to war. Also, Happy Birthday to Ron Howard, known for his role as Opie in The Andy Griffith Show.
