What’s this?

The Library of Congress announced the addition of twenty-five films to the National Film Registry today. Some of them, like “All the President’s Men” seem overdue, but others, like “Airplane!” are inspired and welcome. It was a big year for George Lucas, too; both “The Empire Strikes Back” and his legendary 1967 student film “Electronic Labyrinth: THX 1138 4EB” were also added. Read the full press release.

  1. Fun to see The Empire Strikes Back hit the list. Wow, I feel old. My boys, 6 and 9, love the Star Wars series, just as I did as a kid. And Airplane no doubt is a classic slapstick worth a thousand laughs.
