National Film Registry Announces Library of Congress Inductees

It’s always great to see these additions to the registry, ensuring their preservation. Many films released before 1950 have been destroyed due to their short lifespans. The fact that the National Film Registry has chosen “Back to the Future” makes me extremely happy, and brings a newfound faith to the organization. With the inclusion of these 25 films, the list has now risen to 475 films.

– “The Naked City”

– “Close Encounters of the Third Kind”

– “In a Lonely Place”

– “Oklahoma!”

– “Back to the Future”

– “12 Angry Men”

– “The Strong Man”

– “The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance”

– “Bullitt” (1968)

– “Dance, Girl, Dance” (1940)

– “Dances With Wolves” (1990)

– “Days of Heaven” (1978)

– “Glimpse of the Garden” (1957)

– “Grand Hotel” (1932)

– “The House I Live In” (1945)

– “Mighty Like a Moose” (1926)

– “Now, Voyager” (1942)

– “Our Day” (1938)

– “Peege” (1972)

– “The Sex Life of the Polyp” (1928)

– “Three Little Pigs” (1933)

    I was rooting for CLOSE ENCOUNTERS!– so glad it finally made it. Happy to see NOW VOYAGER, BULLITT, and BACK TO THE FUTURE make the cut. No Hitchcock is a shame— there are still several out there. And oddly, although HALLOWEEN was added last year, the skipped-over EXORCIST has yet to make the cut. Also THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK needs to be put on that list soon. I wish there were more modern films on the list this year– last year had a ’93 and a ’96. 1990’s DANCES WITH WOLVES was the most recent this year– we’re going backwards!

    I really wish I saw more of this years inductees. They are all great films and I have only seen a handful this year. I got to pick up the slack.


    I’ve always liked NOW, VOYAGER. If that’s one of the ones you haven’t seen, it’ll be on TCM on 1/31.
