  • November 13 – The Italian government decrees that teachers must use a military or party uniform in a class.
  • November 21
    • The MCC makes an ultimately controversial decision to alter the lbw rule so a batsman can be lbw to a ball pitching outside off stump. The change is later blamed for many problems developing during the 1950s, primarily negative bowling outside leg stump to a field of short-leg fieldsmen.
    • Cole Porter's musical Anything Goes, starring Ethel Merman, premieres in New York City.
  • November 23 – An Anglo-Ethiopian boundary commission in the Ogaden discovers an Italian garrison at Walwal, which lays well within Ethiopian territory. This encounter leads to the Abyssinia Crisis.
  • November 26Universal Pictures releases the first film version of Fannie Hurst's novel, 'Imitation of Life', starring Claudette Colbert and Louise Beavers. It gives Beavers, usually featured in small roles as a maid, her best screen role, and features the largest supporting role played by a black person in a Hollywood film up till then. Its storyline is extremely daring for a 1934 film – part of it revolves around a young mulatto girl rejecting her mother and trying to "pass for white". It is the first Hollywood film to seriously deal with this subject. The 1936 film version of Show Boat, also from Universal, will deal with a similar storyline.
  • November 27 birth of Thomas Nelson Crawford in Larne, Co.Antrim, Northern Ireland - dedicated primary teacher,sportsman, loving and caring husband and father.
  • November 27 – A running gun battle between FBI agents and bank robber Baby Face Nelson results in the death of one FBI agent and the mortal wounding of special agent Samuel P. Cowley, who was still able to mortally wound Nelson.
  • November 27 – Bolivian President Daniel Salamanca deposed.
