2010 Library of Congress Film Registry Announced
Washington D.C. – “Airplane”, “All the President’s Men”, “The Empire Strikes Back” and the “Pink Panther” were among the 25 films added to the 2010 National Film Registry, the Library of Congress announced today.
Under the terms of the National Film Preservation Act, each year the Librarian of Congress names 25 films to the National Film Registry that are “culturally, historically or aesthetically” significant, to be preserved for all time. These films are not selected as the “best” American films of all time, but rather as works of enduring significance to American culture.
Other notable additions this year include “The Exorcist”, “Macabe and Mrs. Miller”, “Malcom X” and Saturday Night Fever".
