Well this is interesting. Our very own U.S. Government archives 25 films a year to be stored in the Library of Congress. The National Film Preservation Board goes through loads of public suggestions every year to whittle it down to 25 movies. I have now decided that job (the person who watches movies all day) would be the funnest funnest funnest job of all jobs. Anyway, this year the following movies were chosen to enter the below sea level basements (in alphabetical order):

Antonia: A Portrait of the Woman (1974)
Atlantic City (1980)
Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid (1969)
The Chechahcos (1924)
