My Fair Lady and The Shining are amongst the latest 25 films inducted into the National Film Registry

At the end of each year The National Film Registry in USA announces its annual list of films to be inducted and for 2018 these include two Film and Furniture favourites for film sets and furniture: Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining and the musical My Fair Lady.

Under the terms of the National Film Preservation Act, each year the librarian of Congress names to the National Film Registry 25 motion pictures that are “culturally, historically or aesthetically” significant. The films must be at least 10 years old. 

The 25 of America’s most influential motion pictures are selected based on their importance to the nation’s film heritage.

Last year was also a milestone for the registry: “The National Film Registry turns 30 this year and for those three decades, we have been recognizing, celebrating and preserving this distinctive medium,” said Librarian of Congress Carla Hayden. “These cinematic treasures must be protected because they document our history, culture, hopes and dreams.”
