Pulp Fiction and Mary Poppins together at last in the National Film Registry 

The Library of Congress has released its annual list of 25 films to be added to the National Film Registry as “works of great cultural, historic, or aesthetic significance to the nation’s cinematic heritage.” This year’s list spans from silent films like 1919’s A Virtuous Vamp to Bill Morrison’s 2002 found-footage film Decasia—assembled from decaying film clips discovered at the Library of Congress—which is now the youngest entry in the Registry. There are also a ton of classics modern and otherwise, like Quentin Tarantino’s Pulp Fiction, John Ford’s The Quiet Man, Michael Moore’s Roger & Me, Mary Poppins, The Magnificent Seven, Forbidden Planet, Who’s Afraid Of Virginia Woolf?, and Judgment At Nuremburg. All will be preserved for future generations to discover alcoholic married couples, adventurous documentarians, and one awesome early Leslie Nielsen role. Take a look at the full alphabetical list of this year’s selections below.
