25 Movies Added to National Film Registry

25 movies have been added to the National Film Registry. Selected by the National Film Preservation Board, these films have been deemed culturally, historically and artistically significant.

Here is the complete list:

1. Baby Face (1933)
2. The Buffalo Creek Flood : An Act of Man (1975)
3. The Cameraman (1928)
4. Commandment Keeper Church, Beaufort South Carolina, May 1940 (1940)

9. H2O (1929)
10. Hands Up (1926)
11. Hoop Dreams (1994)
12. House of Usher (1960)
13. Imitation of Life (1934)
14. Jeffries-Johnson World’s Championship Boxing Contest (1910)
15. Making of an American (1920)
16. Miracle on 34th Street (1947)

18. The Music Man (1962)
19. Power of the Press (1928)
20. A Raisin in the Sun (1961)
21. The Rocky Horror Picture Show (1975)
22. San Francisco Earthquake and Fire, April 18, 1906 (1906)
23. The Sting (1973)
24. A Time for Burning (1966)
25. Toy Story (1995)

Opinions? Complaints? Let me know what you think about the Library of Congress’ picks. I have one remark. Toy Story. Why is it included? It is great that a recent film was included but there are other films that should be included ahead of Toy Story. Over half of the movies made before the 1950’s have been lost and anywhere from 80 to 90 percent of the pictures made before 1920 have disappeared. Preserve those movies, not a cartoon that millions own on DVD and most likely will not disintegrate into thin air at any second.

  1. Your Toy Story comment really hit the mark. I can think of MANY films that need preservation before that one…
