This Week in History: November 26th - December 2ndby 👨‍💻 Graham Pierrepoint

December is on its way already – who could have believed it? As always there’s always time for us to take a close look at what’s gone down in the years and decades gone by. How far are we going to head back this time? Without further ado, let’s step into the One News Page time machine and see where things take us.

November 26th, 1942 – ‘Casablanca’ Debuts
Play it again, Sam – the iconic Bogart and Bergman movie debuted on this day 76 years ago – and since then, it remains one of the most quotable pictures of the past century. Has there been anything released since then which quite beats it? That’s up for debate.
Famous Birthday: Tina Turner (Musician), 79

November 27th, 2013 – ‘Frozen’ is Released
From an iconic movie of one type to a completely different one. Inarguably regarded as one of the biggest cultural lynchpins of the modern age, Disney’s modern take on ‘The Snow Queen’ is still the highest-grossing animated movie of all time, even five years on – and we all know how that signature song goes by now…
Famous Birthday: Bruce Lee (Martial Arts and Movie Legend), 1940 - 1973

November 28th, 1895 – And They’re Off!
Motor racing has come a long, long way – and it’s all thought to have started on this day back in 1895, when six cars were set to race from Chicago to Evanston and back. The average speed of the winner? A blistering seven miles per hour.
Famous Birthday: Jon Stewart (Comedian), 56

November 29th, 1935 – Schrodinger Thinks About Cats
Erwin Schrodinger’s famous hypothesis about a cat in a box is still cited and discussed to this day. It’s a simple paradox which has helped millions critique and analyze quantum theory over the decades. The theory is – if a cat is in a box that is closed – is it dead, or is it alive? This paradox suggests both at the same time. It’s intriguing reading!
Famous Birthday: Howie Mandel (Comedian), 63

November 30th, 2017 – Rainbow Breaks All Records
Yes – there is a record for the longest rainbow ever spotted – and it was found on this day last year in the Yangmingshan mountains, in Taipei. You can’t measure it by distance – but by time – as it reportedly lasted for eight hours and 58 minutes.
Famous Birthday: Mark Twain (Author), 1835 - 1910

December 1st, 1955 – Rosa Parks Arrested
It was the moment that helped to propel the civil rights movement in the US – Rosa Parks, of Montgomery, Alabama, was arrested having refused to give up her bus seat to a white passenger during times of racial segregation. The event also propelled Parks’ friend, Dr Martin Luther-King, to step up efforts for fair rights for all races.
Famous Birthday: Bette Midler (Actor), 73

December 2nd, 1976 – Castro Becomes Cuban President
Having been Cuba’s Prime Minister since 1959, Fidel Castro became the President here on this day 42 years ago. He remained in office until 2006 when he stepped back due to ill health, enabling his brother Raul to take over in his stead. He would retire in 2008, passing away in 2016.
Famous Birthday: Britney Spears (Musician), 37
