Cinderella, Jurassic Park, My Fair Lady, The Shining and More Added to National Film Registry


  • National Film Registry
The Library of Congress has chosen 25 motion pictures—including classics from Walt Disney, Alfred Hitchcock, Steven Spielberg and Orson Welles—to be added to the National Film Registry. For three decades, the registry has recognized and preserved classic films because they document "our history, culture, hopes and dreams," according to a spokesman from the Library of Congress.

Films chosen for the registry must be at least 10 years old. More than 6,300 titles were nominated by the public this year, and final selections were made by the Librarian of Congress after consulting with members of the National Film Preservation Board.

  • Bad Day at Black Rock (1955)
  • Broadcast News (1987)
