 Ben-Hur (1959)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
Ben-Hur (1959) is MGM's three and a half hour, wide-screen epic Technicolor blockbuster - a Biblical tale, subtitled A Tale of the Christ.
The colorful 1959 version was the most expensive film ever made up to its time, and the most expensive film of the 50s decade.
At $15 million and shot on a grand scale, it was a tremendous make-or-break risk for MGM Studios - and ultimately saved the studio from bankruptcy.

  Collectibles: Chevy's wild 1959 Impala reborn   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
I remember thinking that all the scoops, the chrome-laden grille, the spinner hubcaps and that weird whatever it was on the back of the roof made it look like some unearthly vehicle had just plopped itself right on the turntable at Milner.
All those memories came home to me when I unwrapped West Coast Precision Diecast's 1959 Chevrolet Impala hardtop, all done up in Aspen Green and Classic Cream, which was the most popular color scheme on this particular car.
This has to be one of the most difficult cars to replicate because of the unusual bends in the sheet metal, the angle of the fins, the slope of the roof and countless other aspects of its design.

 1959
The bill was designed to preserve unemployment insurance as a joint federal-state program, but to establish minimum standards for all states at a time when unemployment benefits and their duration varied widely from one part of the country to another.
Although by 1959 World War II had been over for 14 years, contemporaries in 1959 felt that the nation still suffered a housing stock shortage but more especially, a problem of substandard housing in too many cities and states.
Against a background of steadily growing national prosperity, housing that lacked indoor plumbing and electricity was seen to be unfinished business from the pre-war Depression, and the broadly based support for slum clearance and modern amenities led to a demand for a greater federal effort to aid cities and states in housing construction.

Parts of the machine began functioning in 1959, and the computer finally became fully operational in 1961.
While not the first computer on campus--a Litton LGP-30 shared by the Mechanical Engineering and Chemical Engineering departments was in use in 1957[3]--it quickly became Rice's primary computer and remained in that role until supplanted by an IBM 7040, followed by a Burroughs B5500, in the late 1960's[4].
Such a project would be another significant step towards preserving the history of computer research at Rice.
