One of my favorite movies made the list of the 25 that have been added to the National Film Registry this year. “Forrest Gump” made in 1994 is one of that elite group, which the Librarian of Congress feels are so important, they have to be preserved. “The Silence of the Lambs”(1991), starring Jodie Foster and Anthony Hopkins, also captured a spot, along with “Bambi”(1942). Sally Fields’ Oscar-winning performance highlighted the next selected one, “Norma Rae” in 1979 and “Stand and Deliver” was also added from 1988. Others on the list are: “The War of the Worlds” (1953), “Twentieth Century”(1934), “Porgy and Bess” (1959), “Nicholas Brothers Family Home Movies”(1930s-40s), “The Negro Soldier”(1944), “The Lost Weekend”(1945), “The Kid” (1921), “The Iron Horse” (1924), “I, An Actress”(1977), “Hester Street” (1975), “Growing Up Female” (1971), “Fake Fruit Factory”(1986), “Faces”(1968), “El Mariachi” (1992), “A Cure of Pokeritis”(1912), “The Cry of the Children”(1912), “Crisis:Behind a Presidential Commitment”(1963), “A Computer Animated Hand”(1972),
“The Big Heat”(1953), and “Allures” (1961). Go to this site for a complete look at each nominee.

And now, a clip from one of the most enjoyable movies I’ve ever seen. I can’t imagine anyone other than Tom Hanks in the title role.
