I just loved this video. Gave me a full understanding of American cinema & the need to preserve it. The American Film Registry was very interesting with 25 additions every year of movies that must be preserved for posterity. They include block buster hits like The wizard of Oz, Casablanca, etc. But lesser known movies & home movies as well as one rock video "Thriller" by Michael Jackson. The registry is eclectic with over 525 movies. A worth while for any film buff. Movie critic Leonard Malton endorses Amazing Shadows.
