The Library of Congress announced Wednesday that it has selected 25 movies, including “Bad Day at Black Rock,” “Days of Wine and Roses” and “The Shining,” to be added to the National Film Registry.
Also on the list this year are “Jurassic Park,” “My Fair Lady” and “Brokeback Mountain.”
The newest additions go all the way back to 1898 for a 29-second clip called “Something Good — Negro Kiss.” Also being added is the music documentary “Monterey Pop,” from 1968.
“The National Film Registry turns 30 this year and for those three decades, we have been recognizing, celebrating and preserving this distinctive medium,” said Librarian of Congress Carla Hayden. “These cinematic treasures must be protected because they document our history, culture, hopes and dreams.”
