NPR: ‘Return of the Jedi,’ ‘Selena’ and ‘Sounder’ added to National Film Registry

NPR: ‘Return of the Jedi,’ ‘Selena’ and ‘Sounder’ added to National Film Registry. “Every year, the Library of Congress adds 25 new movies to the National Film Registry. It’s a way to draw attention to the Library’s efforts to protect and archive American film history. As usual, a few big blockbusters have made the cut. Thanks in part to online lobbying by fans, Star Wars Episode VI—Return of the Jedi, from 1983, and The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, from 2001, will be preserved for posterity.” As will Pink Flamingos.
