1139.  Count Alfonso I of Portugal proclaimed King.  Mmm, no.

1729.  North Carolina becomes a royal colony.  Mmmnno.

1814.  English engineer George Stephenson introduces his first steam locomotive.  Interesting, but. . . .no.

1918.  Annette Adams sworn in as 1st woman district attorney of US, California.  Mnnnno.

1933.  1st Dutch live radio concert: Duke Ellington.  Cool. . . .but, no.

1956.  Italian liner Andrea Doria sinks after colliding with the Stockholm.  Too sad.

1981.  Voyager 2 encounters Saturn.  Cosmic. . . .nnno.

Well, I give up.  I can't find the occasion for the movies tomorrow.  I wouldn't say it's out/out communist-themed, but there certainly is more than a suspicion of socialist/collectivist subversion there.  But there are also some good movies in the lineup.  Catch the King Vidor.  Not a monument, but a surprising 'let's all pitch in and make something from nothing Depression era positive pull up the bootstraps' kind of thing.  Salt of the Earth (1954) is a monument.  I'm recording the Eisenstein.
