« Prev    November 1956    Next »

November 1: The States Reorganisation Act of India reforms the boundaries and names of Indian states. Two new states Kerala and Karnataka were formed. - City Lights Books publishes Howl and Other Poems by Allen Ginsberg. - The film Oklahoma! (1955), previously released to select cities in Todd-AO, now receives a national release in Cinemascope, since not all theatres are yet equipped for Todd-AO. To accomplish this, the film had to be actually shot twice, rather than printing one version in two different film processes as is done today.

November 3: MGM's film The Wizard of Oz makes its TV debut on the CBS network. This marks the first time a major Hollywood film running more than ninety minutes is televised uncut in one evening. Up to then, only B-movies and British films had been telecast, often edited or in two parts if they ran more than ninety minutes. The longest film telecast prior to this was Olivier's version of Richard III, which, unlike Oz, was somewhat edited and not telecast in prime time.

November 4: 1956 Hungarian Revolution: More Soviet troops invade Hungary to crush a revolt that started on October 23. Thousands are killed, more are wounded, and nearly a quarter million leave the country.

November 6: United States presidential election, 1956: Republican incumbent Dwight D. Eisenhower defeats Democrat challenger Adlai E. Stevenson in a rematch of their contest 4 years earlier.

November 7: Suez Crisis: The United Nations General Assembly adopts a resolution calling for the United Kingdom, France, and Israel to withdraw their troops from Arab lands immediately.

November 13: The United States Supreme Court declares Alabama and Montgomery, Alabama laws requiring segregated buses illegal, thus ending the Montgomery Bus Boycott.

November 14: Fighting ends in Hungary. Confirmation needed

November 15: Middle East Technical University is founded in Ankara, Turkey.

November 18: At the reception of the Polish embassy in Moscow Nikita Khrushchev uttered his famous phrase "We will bury you".

November 20: In Yugoslavia, former prime minister Milovan Djilas is arrested after he criticizes Josip Broz Tito.

November 22: The 1956 Summer Olympics begin in Melbourne, Australia.

November 23: The Suez Crisis causes petrol rationing in Britain.

November 28: Roger Vadim's drama film And God Created Woman released in France as Et Dieu... créa la femme, propels Brigitte Bardot into the public spotlight as a "sex kitten".

November 30: Floyd Patterson wins the world heavyweight boxing championship that was vacant after the retirement of Rocky Marciano. (source: Wikipedia)
