Breakfast at Tiffany's Added to National Film Registry
The film version of Truman Capote’s masterpiece novella was added to the National Film Registry of the Library of Congress yesterday. “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” was one of 25 films chosen for its cultural, historic and aesthetic significance. According to the registry, The Library of Congress Packard Campus for Audio Visual Conservation in Culpeper, Virginia, will work to make sure the film is preserved for future generations through its own preservation program or through collaborative efforts with other archives, movie studios and independent filmmakers.
Also chosen this year were “3:10 to Yuma,” based on a short story by Elmore Leonard, “A Christmas Story” and the silent adaptation of “Uncle Tom’s Cabin.”
Here’s the original trailer for “Breakfast at Tiffany’s”:
