R dataset not found?

I'm trying to load the dataset life.expectancy.1971 , but seem to have trouble loading it. I'm inputting

data(life.expectancy.1971)
life.expectancy.1971

and keep getting the following error:

data set �life.expectancy.1971� not foundError: object 'life.expectancy.1971' not found.

I'm still pretty new to R so it could be a simple error on my part, but I haven't been able to figure out what's wrong since that has worked for loading other datasets. Can anyone help me figure out what I'm missing?
