A 50mm f/1.8 manual lens will cost about $35.00.

I've been looking ... have not found that deal yet. Which brand are you referring to?

Actually, I'd prefer a 1.4 for $50 if you know of one

I have had good luck with both keh.com and adorama.com. They have TONS. Try here.

http://www.keh.com/search?store=camera&brand=Brand&category=Class&k=50mm 1scdo8&s=1&bcode=Brand&ccode=Class&grade=Grade&sprice=0&eprice=0&r=SE&e

That should pull up a search at keh.com for "50mm 1.8". After a quick glance I see:

Canon FD 50mm 1.8, Excellent condition- $31

Konica 57mm 1.4, Excellent condition- $62

Minolta 50mm 1.7, Excellent condition- $29

Olympus OM 50mm 1.8, Excellent condition- $41

Pentax 50mm 1.7, Excellent condition- $59

Those and lots more cheapies to choose from, and KEH is very conservative with their ratings, so I would expect all those lenses to look and work almost like new.

If you are a little more patient, you can always browse your local craigslist for deals, they can sometimes be very cheap.
