It was announced this morning that The Empire Strikes Back is one of 25 films that the Library of Congress is making part of the National Film Registry this year.
But that’s not the only Lucas production making it in this year – Electronic Labyrinth: THX 1138 4EB, not the feature film, but George’s student short – has also been added. (Random…) Star Wars and American Graffiti are already a part of the registry.
Saturday Night Fever, The Exorcist, All the President’s Men, The Pink Panther and Airplane! also made the cut for 2010.
