25 New Films Enter National Film Registry ... Good Ones, Too!

by | December 28, 2006 | Comments

Every year another 25 films are chosen for "National Film Registry" designation, and it’s a pretty big honor to be on that list. I suppose one could look at it like baseball’s Hall of Fame — and this year the bigwigs chose some pretty cool movies … like "Halloween," "Rocky," "Fargo," and "Blazing Saddles."

I’ll let Variety explain it: "A place on the list — always made up of 25 films — guarantees the film will be preserved under the terms of the National Film Preservation Act." (Click here for the full article.)

The full list of this year’s inductees looks like this:

"Applause" (1929)
"The Big Trail" (1930)
"Blazing Saddles" (1974)
"The Curse of Quon Gwon" (1916-17)
"Daughter of Shanghai" (1937)
"Drums of Winter" (1988)
"Early Abstractions #1-5,7,10" (1939-56)
"Fargo" (1996)
"Flesh and the Devil" (1927)
"Groundhog Day" (1993)
"Halloween" (1978)
"In the Street" (1948/52)
"The Last Command" (1928)
"Notorious" (1946)
"Red Dust" (1932)
"Reminiscences of a Journey to Lithuania" (1971-72)
"Rocky" (1976)
"sex, lies and videotape" (1989)
"Siege" (1940)
"St. Louis Blues" (1929)
"The T.A.M.I. Show" (1964)
"Tess of the Storm Country" (1914)
"Think of Me First as a Person" (1960-75)
"A Time Out of War" (1954)
"Traffic in Souls" (1913)

Don’t feel bad if you haven’t heard of some of those titles; the National Film Registry prides itself on knowing/supporting the older and/or obscure stuff.
