1965 - Ardis was 53 years old when from August 11 to 16, riots broke out in Watts, a Black section of Los Angeles.

The National Guard was called in to help the LA police quell rioting.

1998 - When she was 86 years old, on December 19th, the movie Titanic - based on the 1912 sinking of the ship and starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet - was released. Winning 11 Oscars, it was the first film to gross over a billion dollars and eventually grossed over $2 billion.
