The Library of Congress's National Film Registry turns 30 this year and has a pretty cool crop of new additions for the year. The Registry preserves films which are "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant" under the terms of the National Film Preservation Act.

Each year the Registry picks 25 titles to add. The additions this year are the following:

Bad Day at Black Rock (1955) … an incredible spaghetti western-influenced flick where Spencer Tracy plays a one-armed WWII vet kicking racist ass.

  1. Broadcast News (1987)

  1. Brokeback Mountain (2005)

  1. Cinderella (1950)

  1. Days of Wine and Roses (1962)

  1. Dixon-Wanamaker Expedition to Crow Agency (1908)

  1. Eve’s Bayou (1997)

  1. The Girl Without a Soul (1917) … The George Eastman Museum has an interesting write-up on this progressive picture from the silent era. Unfortunately, I couldn't find a trailer or a print of the film to share here.

  1. Hair Piece: A Film for Nappy Headed People (1984)

  1. Hearts and Minds (1974)

  1. Hud (1963)

  1. The Informer (1935)

  1. Jurassic Park (1993)

  1. The Lady From Shanghai (1947) … The second best film noir from Orson Welles (after 1958’s Touch of Evil). Shanghai stars Welles with then-wife Rita Hayworth in a story that is classic, labyrinthine noir. The end hall of mirrors sequence (which you can watch below) was deeply influenced by that classic of German Expressionist cinema The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari (1920) too.

  1. Leave Her to Heaven (1945)

  1. Monterey Pop (1968)

  1. My Fair Lady (1964)

  1. The Navigator (1924) … See a full print of this silent Buster Keaton classic below.

  1. On the Town (1949)

  1. One-Eyed Jacks (1961) … a classic western directed by and starring Marlon Brando.

  1. Pickup on South Street (1953) … a film noir from the great maverick director Samuel Fuller (The Steel Helmet and Shock Corridor).

  1. Rebecca (1940) … Alfred Hitchcock’s haunting 1940 picture about a bride (Joan Fontaine) who is haunted by the memory of her new husband's (Laurence Olivier) first wife.

  1. The Shining (1980) … Stanley Kubrick's incredible horror flick based on the Stephen King novel, about specters and insanity at a seasonally-deserted hotel in the Rocky Mountains. Read about the gothic qualities of The Shining here.

  1. Smoke Signals (1998)

  1. Something Good – Negro Kiss (1898) … a remarkable 30 second film about an African-American couple kissing. See it fully restored below:
