National Film Registry Additions for 2012 Announced

posted December 19, 2012

The Library of Congress today named 25 motion pictures that have been selected for inclusion in the National Film Registry of the Library of Congress.

Among them is Sons of the Desert (1933), a riotous comedy that starred Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy, along with comedian Charley Chase. Veteran director William A. Seiter for Hal Roach Studios successfully incorporated into a feature-length film many of the comedic techniques that had made Laurel & Hardy masters of short-subject humor.

  • Anatomy of a Murder (1959)
  • The Augustas (1930s-1950s)
