2006 Registry films

12.27.2006

The Librarian of Congress doesn't sound like a very hip guy (or gal) but whoever he/she is, they've got pretty good taste in movies. The Library of Congress, as they do every year, announced a number of movies to be added to the National Film Registry, a way to "preserve films that are culturally, historically or aesthetically significant." 25 total films were selected and notables making the cut include ROCKY, HALLOWEEN, FARGO, GROUNDHOG DAY and BLAZING SADDLES. What exactly does it mean for a film that gets added to the Library? "For each title named to the registry, the Library of Congress works to ensure that the film is preserved for future generations, either through the Library’s massive motion picture preservation program or through collaborative ventures with other archives, motion picture studios and independent filmmakers." So rest easy tonight knowing that your grandkid's grandkid will know who Needlenose Ned is. "Bing!" Below find a complete list of the films added:
