Cinemania stuff...

What do 'Broken Blossoms', 'Casablanca', 'Citizen Kane', 'Lassie Come Home', 'Gone With the Wind' and 'Animal House' have in common?

A) Each are films?
B) Each have scenes with characters eating?
C) Each have four syllables in their title?
D) Each are part of the National Film Registry?
E) All of the above?

The New York Times has an article on why the National Film Registry selects some of the films that they do.

The National Film Registry site is here.

Somewhat unrelated (but worth a plug) I've just written two 1500 word reviews for DVD Talk on Jean Renoir's 'The Rules of the Game' and Michelangelo Antonioni's 'Blow Up' - both of which just came out on DVD.
