All in the Family and The Jeffersons to be honored in live special buff.ly/2UL1fbL
For those unfamiliar with the project, each year up to 25 films are selected for preservation in the Library of Congress. Each film must be at least 10-years-old, they do not have to be feature length, and they do not have to have received a theatrical release.
This year’s list includes:
As with each year there are a lot of early movies on here I have never heard of, but the real stand outs this year are Airplane!, The Empire Strikes Back and Saturday Night Fever. Almost every year there is one or two that I feel don’t fit with the charter for the National Film Preservation Board which says eligible films have to be “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant films” to be included in the registry. However, this year? I think I agree with all of them. This really is a stellar lineup of films.
Any movies on the list that confuse you?
You can send in up to 50 films for the 2011 list, get to it folks!
