National Film Registry Announces New Movies to Be Preserved

National Film Registry Announces New Movies to Be Preserved”

Historians and curators at the Library of Congress have chosen 725 films for the registry since it began in 1989.

Alongside those chosen for their historical value are smash box office hit films like Die Hard, Titanic, Dumbo, Superman, Field of Dreams and The Goonies. And when you consider how many movies the American entertainment industry has produced over the years, that really puts it in perspective as to how much of an honor this is.

The National Film Registry selects film it deems "culturally, historically or aesthetically significant" to be preserved in the library for future generations.

Titanic, the billion-dollar James Cameron epic on the verge of its its 20th anniversary, has sailed into the National Film Registry.

The goal of the National Film Registry, its website says, is ultimately to "ensure the survival, conservation and increased public availability of America's film heritage".

Even though we receive at least a half dozen superhero films on a yearly basis these days, the fact of the matter is that we owe a great debt to director Richard Donner and all involved in the production of Superman: The Movie back in the late 1970s.

The oldest movie added to the list this year is Interior New York Subway, 14th Street to 42nd Street from 1905.

"I thank the National Film Registry for choosing 'Superman: The Movie' and 'The Goonies' as films to be treasured".

Various petitions have made their way around social media in recent years in an effort to get the Library of Congress to recognize 1988's "Die Hard", the classic action flick that made Bruce Willis a star.

Ask any true Oregonian to name the best movie filmed in the state and you're assured Richard Donner's "The Goonies" will make the top five.
