Everything is Proceeding as I Have Foreseen


It's official. When, in hundreds of years, the future of humanity scours the U.S. Library of Congress for clues as to how primitively we lived back in the early 21st century, the jive-talking granny in "Airplane!" could very well be integral to the study.

That movie, a slapstick comedy from 1980, along with 24 other films will be added to the National Film Registry this year because they have been deemed "culturally, historically or aesthetically significant," according to the National Film Registry Board.

Also among those to be immortalized on government shelves are the "Star Wars" sequel "The Empire Strikes Back," "Malcolm X," "All the President's Men" and "The Exorcist."
