The scene also was shot using an alternate line, "Frankly, my dear, I just don't care," in case the film cen- sors objected to the word "damn." The film was approved, but producer David O. Selznick was fined $5,000 for including the curse. - On June 26, 1959, the St. Lawrence Seaway is officially opened, creating a navigational channel from the At- lantic Ocean to all the Great Lakes. The seaway -- made up of a system of canals, locks and dredged waterways -- extends a distance of nearly 2,500 miles, from the Atlantic Ocean to Duluth, Minnesota. - On June 29, 1970, U.S. ground troops end two months of combat operations in Cambodia and return to South Vietnam. News of the crossing into Cambodia set off a wave of an- tiwar demonstrations, including one at Kent State University in Ohio that resulted in the killing of four students by Army National Guard troops.
