As usual the films added to the collection tend toward the newer (BACK TO THE FUTURE, DANCES WITH WOLVES) but there are a few silents.

 

THE STRONG MAN (1926) is one of Harry Langdon's best features. TOL'ABLE DAVID (1921) is a superb melodrama directed by King Vidor and starring Richard Barthelmess in one of his all-time great performances. MIGHTY LIKE A MOOSE (1926) is a funny Charley Chase short.

I think all it means is that the films are on the "national registry" so I assume that means they are safe from disappearance or that (possibly) they are being restored.....

The National Film Registry is the registry of films selected by the United States National Film Preservation Board for preservation in the Library of Congress. The board, established by the National Film Preservation Act of 1988, was reauthorized in 1992, 1996, and 2005 by acts of Congress. The 1996 law also created the non-profit National Film Preservation Foundation, which is affiliated with the National Film Preservation Board but which raises money from the private sector.

 

The National Film Registry is meant to preserve up to twenty-five "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant films" each year; to be eligible, films must be at least ten years old. The films do not have to be feature-length or to have had a theatrical release. The Registry is meant to showcase the full range and diversity of American film heritage, and includes films ranging from Hollywood classics to newsreels, silent films, experimental films, films out of copyright protection, significant amateur footage, documentary films, and independent films. As of 2007, there are 475 films preserved in the National Film Registry. The 2007 list was announced on December 27, 2007.

 

The most recent film is Fargo (1996), while the oldest film is Blacksmith Scene (1893). The most represented year in the list is 1939, which has 17 entries (including films created in various years).

In each year since 1989, 25 films of U.S. origin have been selected for preservation, restoration and storage at the Library of Congress. This is done in conjunction with the congressionally mandated/created National Film Preservation Foundation.

 

The "titles" selected are all deemed to be signifcant examples of America's film history - whether films from Hollywood, early documentaries, experimental short films or even significant "home movies". It doesn't have any effect on the availablitiy or ownership of these films. It just means that the Library of Congress will acquire and store a pristine copy of the film in its archives as a reference for future generations.

 

Once in a while you will see a film presented on TCM with a "leader" detailing and acknowledging the involvement of the National Film Registry in the restoration of that particular film. I believe Mr Smith Goes To Washington and the Grant/Hepburn Holiday include such "leaders".

Why Close Encounters or Back to the Future ?>>

 

Because even modern films are endangered due to fading film stock and other problems. The National Registry tries to help preserve films from all the eras so that future generations will be able to enjoy them.

Library of Congress, like Eastman House or UCLA or AMPAS and others, allows for on-site showings (the films generally do not circulate like other library materials) of films in its collection but doesn't do much to get the films on DVD. So they usually end up safe and snug in a vault. Of course some of the films on the list are (or have been) widely distributed on DVD and shown on TV ad nauseum. The goal of the National Film Registry is to preserve/restore, not to market or work with companies like Killiam or Milestone to make these films available to the general public

Why Close Encounters or Back to the Future ?

 

According to a source in the Hollywood Reporter article linked below, they wanted to include more science fiction. I personally don't see how there is any significant risk of those two titles being allowed to deteriorate. I was happy to see 1939's Wuthering Heights on the list because the print I saw at the Museum of Modern Art was atrocious and direly needs restoration.

 

http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/hr/content_display/news/e3ide91e2bbd6c24afff622513d64dbf694

 

Here is the list:

 

"Back to the Future" (1985)

"Bullitt" (1968)

"Close Encounters of the Third Kind" (1977)

"Dance, Girl, Dance" (1940)

"Dances With Wolves" (1990)

"Days of Heaven" (1978)

"Glimpse of the Garden" (1957)

"Grand Hotel" (1932)

"The House I Live In" (1945)

"In a Lonely Place" (1950)

"The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance" (1962)

"Mighty Like a Moose" (1926)

"The Naked City" (1948)

"Now, Voyager" (1942)

"Oklahoma!" (1955)

"Our Day" (1938)

"Peege" (1972)

"The Sex Life of the Polyp" (1928)

"The Strong Man" (1926)

"Three Little Pigs" (1933)

"Tol'able David" (1921)

"Tom, Tom the Piper's Son" (1969-71)

"12 Angry Men" (1957)

"The Women" (1939)

"Wuthering Heights" (1939)

I agree, MissGoddess... I don't see DANCES WITH WOLVES disappearing either but DAYS OF HEAVEN is a good choice. The last print I saw of this TOTALLY GORGEOUS 1978 film was all washed out.

 

Certainly WUTHERING HEIGHTS and GRAND HOTEL and THE WOMEN are at least major films. And OKLAHOMA should have its Technicolor preserved.

 

Of course it's my personal preference but I think there are SO MANY silent films that deserve this "honor" rather than BACK TO THE FUTURE but I know that a personal choice. Even if LOC poked along with 25 SILENT films every year, they still would take forever to preserve/restore what relatively few silent films remain.

 

Who makes the choices for the national registry? LOC staff? One person?

The link will take you to Dave Kehr's website and the article he wrote where he talks about the problems with modern day color film stock and the unstability of digital technology as well as mentions that there is a large advisory board that recommends and choices the films for preservation each year.

Also here is an article by Michael Cieply that talks about the problems of modern films and the pitfalls of digital preservation:

From the NY Times article: "In other words, we could be watching Wallace Beery long after more contemporary images are gone. "

 

I'm not particularly a Wallace Beery fan but I'd rather watch him than 90% of contemporary images. :P

 

I just cannot see huge blockbusters like *Close Encounters* and *Back to the Future* having to worry so very much like the silents and other older films that generate much less public interest than these films constantly shown in countless different outlets.

I'll echo the "another disappointing list". It's probably my expectations after reading the quotes about trying to preserve national film heritage and the loss of so many old films. And then they're wasting some of those incredibly few 25 slots on so many modern films. The number of pre-1930 entries certainly seems exactly opposite from the quotes that lament the loss of so many old films.

 

I can certainly understand why the Federal Gov't can only afford to recognize 25 films a year. Heavens - let's not blow the budget on American art, not when we can channel kajillions of taxpayer dollars into hidden programs for Charlie Wilson War type projects.

 

475 whole films in the LOC registry, and TCM does about that many every month. No wonder I love this channel. It seems to do more with far less.

Yes we have BILLIONS of dollars to waste of all kinds of political and military crap but apparently we have only a couple thousand to waste on cinematic art. But "art" is a subjective thing, and I realize this. Yet it seems to be such a paltry effort to preserve our historical cinema.

 

For those of us who collect silent and classic films, we have witnessed first-hand the deterioration of even the small percent of old films that exist. And even high-profile and superb restorations of films like BEYOND THE ROCKS (1922) show the marks of neglect and deterioration. Just think how many films have had nothing done and exist only because of old prints that surfaced on TV or early VHS.

 

For every WINGS or JAZZ SINGER that get restored, there are a hundred other films waiting to be rescued. To think that we've already lost so much of the art of Pickford, Valentino, Fairbanks, Swanson, Gish, Gilbert, Davies, Novarro, the Talmadges, and many others is simply heartbreaking.

I probably shouldn't have bought Ollie that 18th cup of espresso this afternoon. This topic obviously didn't need caffeine to stoke Ollie up! ha ha... sorry!

 

I heard that in the '60s or early '70s, the Brit Film Institute destroyed thousands of tapes because their director (and the destroying personnel) decided shelf space and re-using the video tapes was more important than preserving art.

 

Peter Cook even tried to buy the tapes containing many many of his Peter Cook-Dudley Moore BEYOND THE FRINGE episodes, but because the BBC Bureaucracy had never considered such a possibility, they refused to let him buy the tapes OR buy new replacement tapes. The BBC decided to destroy that show's tapes instead.

 

I forget the director's name at that time who ultimately bore the brunt of wanton destruction's responsibility, but she received a good amount of castigation over this.

 

You'd mentioned Novarro and he's a slient screen star that I've only recently learned about, and I understand restoration efforts are underway on some of his films (THE RAT series?) but there are so few copies available and, as you said, so many thousands have been lost.

 

Consider a film like DOC HOLLYWOOD (1991, Michael J. Fox). It's only available in Full Screen Pan & Puke format. Yet it wasn't filmed in such squeamish format - but that's the only thing available. Decision-makers are responsible for destroying or maiming even recent art with few repercussions. I'm so glad the Mona Lisa isn't given to Hollywood for preservation.

OH you mean Ivor Novello, the British superstar who starred in THE RAT with Mae Marsh and in THE RETURN OF THE RAT with Isabel Jeans. Novello also starred with Marsh in D.W. Griffith's THE WHITE ROSE and in Hitchcock's THE LODGER.

 

Ramon Novarro (whom I mentioned) was the star of BEN-HUR, PRISONER OF ZENDA, etc.

Hello all. Hope you all had a nice holiday. Just got back today and read with interest this fine thread. I have some comments as well.

 

I can understand most your frustrations with the current selections by the National Film Registry. Twenty five films could be 50 or 100 films. But from my perspective at least they are picking some films each year to preserve in their vaults for future generations to see. As far as selecting more recent films over older or more classic films, one only has to look at the films that they have added since they started. Over 300 are from before 1960. Only 150 are from after 1960. That is not a bad ratio of films that have been selected.

 

The way I see it, the National Film Registry has a duty to perform. Its not an easy duty nor one that I feel I could do more effectively. These folks have to pick films they feel can stand the test of time, are ?culturally, historically or aesthetically significant films?. According to the actual text of the public law the film board is instructed to:

 

?Directs the Librarian of Congress, in consultation with the National Film Registry Board, to: (1) carry out activities to make films included in the National Film Registry more broadly accessible for research and educational purposes and to generate public awareness and support of the Registry and the comprehensive national film preservation program; (2) review the comprehensive national film preservation plan, and amend it to ensure that it addresses technological advances in preserving, storing, and accessing film collections in multiple formats; and (3) whenever possible, undertake expanded initiatives to ensure the preservation of the moving image heritage of the United States by supporting the work of the National Audio-Visual Conservation Center of the Library of Congress at Culpeper Virginia, and other appropriate nonprofit archival and preservation organizations.?

 

Now I may not always agree with their selections, but they do have quite a few already selected from the silent era, and the 1930's. If they feel that picking a film from 1985 or 1977 justifies two of their selections, I can't really argue with them. Eight out of twenty five selected this year are from after 1960. Thats 32% of this years total.

 

I agree that many more films should be selected from the older films that still have not been picked. But with so many left to select, and with only 25 that can be selected, it is a daunting task. Close to 90 silent films have yet to be added to the registry according to their website. I do not know but I am sure there are hundreds more that probably could be added.

 

The bottom line about all of this is this:

 

At least some organization is selecting films that will be preserved for future generations to see. I feel fortunate that I live in a country that at least has organizations like this one and the AFI and all of the other organizations that have sprouted up to help preserve these films. Lets hope that the law can be amended in the future so that Congress can allow more funds to be acquired and spent on these fine films. And the only way they will do that will be for each one of you film fans out there to write their congressmen/woman to appropriate additional funds for this worthwhile exercise. Thats how it is supposed to work, anyhow.

Yes but the maddening thing is that these organizations preserve and restore these films that are then never seen.

 

I was lucky enough to be able to afford a private screening of 5 Gloria Swanson films at the Eastman House in Rochester, but it cost me a thousand dollars to do it, between driving there from Maine (where I was on vacation), hotel in Rochester, and renting the films at Eastman House. I feel very privileged to have seen these great films, and they were spectacular (and I'm not exaggerating at all---Swanson was SUPERB), but not everyone can do this.

 

The whole point to preserving and restoring films is so people can see them.

 

So WHY hasn't TCM made deals with Eastman House to SHOW these great films? TCM certainly has the financial resources do do this.

 

Every classic movie fan deserves the right to see Gloria Swanson in THE TRESPASSER, STAGE STRUCK, FINE MANNERS, ZAZA, and FOR BETTER, FOR WORSE. Each of these films was a total joy. No one can fathom the immense talent of Swanson without seeing these few remaining films from her early days of cinema. These are important and vital films for those who wish to study and enjoy early American films.

 

Fans of classic films shouldn't have to schlep to Rochester or Los Angeles or Washington to see these films in private.

 

And yet I know my only hope of ever seeing John Gilbert's infamous HIS GLORIOUS NIGHT is to go to UCLA and rent it...... it's not fair.

This is a very interesting thread in all honesty, I dont know all the movies the Library of Congress has but I think every movie fan should see these films in the interest of them not only being excellent movies, but to give all fans the chance to see various genres...maybe some of these are in the LOC already .. I have no clue, but these are ones Id vote for

Psycho -- the granddaddy of the slasher era, done perfectly by the man Alfred Hitchcock

North by Northwest - another great flick from Hitch and Cary Grant is GREAT !

Halloween - a good slasher before the sequels and other crap that followed

Dressed to Kill - Both the Sherlock Holmes and the Brian DePalma movies

Phantom of the Opera - Silent

The Lost World - Silent

Double Indemnity

The Time Machine - Rod Taylor

War of the Worlds - original

King Kong 1933 ONLY

Godzilla 1954 Japanese only (stop frowning !! :) )

Out of the Past

The Narrow Margin - a new favorite in Noir

Notorious

The Maltese Falcon - Bogie at his Bogiest :)

The Kennel Murder Case ( a personal favorite of mine, and really shouldn't be frowned upon if you like William Powell or mystery movies, this is a gem IMHO)

Who Done It (Abbott & Costello early comedy & another favorite)

I could go on and on, this is a really a good topic....
