I recently got word that Helen Hill’s film Scratch and Crow has been named to the National Film Registry.
Each year the Librarian of Congress names 25 films to the registry that are “culturally, historically or aesthetically” significant to be preserved for all time. These films are selected as works of enduring importance to American culture.
We got out our DVD of Helen’s films and watched Scratch and Crow. Yessir, it’s a gooder, and I’m glad to see it so recognized. And it’s in good company — Dog Day Afternoon and The Muppet Movie were also named this year.
