This Week in Entertainment 1968

Showbiz ground to a halt in the wake of the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr. on April 4, 1968. As Variety reported, the Oscars were postponed and the Governors’ Ball was canceled entirely, among other measures within the industry. The civil rights leader, who preached the importance of non-violent protest, was shot outside his Lorraine Motel room in Memphis, Tenn., at the age of 39. A Missouri State Penitentiary fugitive named James Earl Ray was arrested for the crime two months later at London’s Heathrow Airport, and, was sentenced to 99 years in prison after pleading guilty on March 10, 1969. Ray died in prison in 1998. The motel where King was shot is now part of the National Civil Rights Museum.
