Fantasy Films Make Registry

A handful of fantastical movies, including the original Miracle on 34th Street and Toy Story, were among the 25 films selected by the Librarian of Congress for the National Film Registry, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

James H. Billington also selected 1960's House of Usher and 1975's The Rocky Horror Picture Show for the registry of films that have cultural, historical or aesthetic significance.

Billington made his selections from more than 1,000 titles nominated by the public after lengthy discussions with the library's motion picture division staff and members of the National Film Preservation Board, the trade paper reported.
