"The Terminator" to be Preserved in US Film Registry

Posted: December 30th, 2008 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
"The Terminator" to be Preserved in US Film RegistrySubmit Comment
The Library of Congress announced Tuesday morning that Arnold Schwarzenegger's "The Terminator" has been selected for preservation in the nation's film archive. The low-budget film directed by James Cameron set a new standard for science-fiction and made Schwarzenegger, now California's governor, a star. The movie is one of 25 films being added to the National Film Registry.

The move will guard "The Terminator" against deterioration, along with the sounds and images of the other culturally significant picks. Other titles being added to the registry include the groundbreaking all-black-cast film "Hallelujah" from 1929; Richard Brooks' 1967 film adaptation of Truman Capote's "In Cold Blood"; and the 1972 film "Deliverance," based on James Dickey's novel about four businessmen on a nightmarish canoe trip in the remote Georgia wilderness.

"The registry helps this nation understand the diversity of America's film heritage and, just as importantly, the need for its preservation," Librarian of Congress James H. Billington said in announcing his 2008 selections. "The nation has lost about half of the films produced before 1950 and as much as 90 percent of those made before 1920."

With Tuesday's additions, the total number of films in the registry will reach 500.

Here is a complete list of the selections:

* "The Asphalt Jungle" (1950)

* "Deliverance" (1972)

* "Disneyland Dream" (1956)

* "A Face in the Crowd" (1957)

* "Flower Drum Song" (1961)

* "Foolish Wives" (1922)

* "Free Radicals" (1979)

* "Hallelujah" (1929)

* "In Cold Blood" (1967)

* "The Invisible Man" (1933)

* "Johnny Guitar" (1954)

* "The Killers" (1946)

* "The March" (1964)

* "No Lies" (1973)

* "On the Bowery" (1957)

* "One Week" (1920)

* "The Pawnbroker" (1965)

* "The Perils of Pauline" (1914)

* "Sergeant York" (1941)

* "The 7th Voyage of Sinbad" (1958)

* "So's Your Old Man" (1926)

* George Stevens World War II Footage (1943-46)

* "The Terminator" (1984)

* "Water and Power" (1989)

* "White Fawn's Devotion" (1910)

I did not know that we had lost movies over the years. I thought Turner Classic Movies had them all!! And why isn't Dr.No (Though it's not my favorite) on the list. It launched arguably the greatest fictional character in film history.
