National Film Registry

Today's "Weekend Edition" on NPR (I know I've been posting tons of links to NPR shows, but they've had some great stuff this past week) discusses the National Film Registry and the list of 25 films that were added to the registry for 2005.

The National Film Preservation Act, passed in 1988, authorized the Librarian of Congress "to
select and preserve up to 25 films each year to add to the National Film Registry." Films are chosen based on their cultural, historical or aesthetic significance.
