Brat Pack, ‘Roger Rabbit’ added to Nat’l Film Registry

WASHINGTON (AP) – While not usually regarded as a golden age of American cinema, the 1980s produced its share of popular classics – and a few more of them have now been added to the prestigious National Film Registry.

The Library of Congress announced Wednesday that “The Breakfast Club,” “The Princess Bride,” and “Who Framed Roger Rabbit” are among the 25 movies tapped for preservation this year. They join three other more obscure 1980s titles on this year’s list.

The national library also picked a few more recent favorites, including Ridley Scott’s “Thelma & Louise,” Disney’s “The Lion King,” and Wes Anderson’s “Rushmore.”
