A League of Their Own and The Matrix: together at last and forever. (There’s no crying in the Matrix, because it’s all just a mental projection.) The two films were among the 25 chosen to be included in the National Film Registry of the Library of Congress. Other notable additions include: Breakfast at Tiffany’s, Dirty Harry, Slacker, Laurel and Hardy’s Son of the Desert, the 1914 adaption of Uncle Tom’s Cabin, Born Yesterday, the documentary The Times of Harvey Milk, the original 3:10 to Yuma, and Kodachrome’s 1922 revolutionary color film test. Also, it appears the Library of Congress is in the holiday spirit, as A Christmas Story also made the cut. It’s good to know there’s a backup just in case TBS goes under.
