YES!

Really, this is quite remarkable. It was eligible after ten years and I'm pretty sure only two films made
the list when they were first eligible. This is only three years later!

BRAVO!

This is the entire list.
It's a great list overall this year, IMO!

Here's the whole list:

Films Selected for the 2018 National Film Registry
(alphabetical order)

    Bad Day at Black Rock (1955)
    Broadcast News (1987)
    Brokeback Mountain (2005)
    Cinderella (1950)
    Days of Wine and Roses (1962)
    Dixon-Wanamaker Expedition to Crow Agency (1908)
    Eve’s Bayou (1997)
    The Girl Without a Soul (1917)
    Hair Piece: A Film for Nappy-Headed People (1984)
    Hearts and Minds (1974)
    Hud (1963)
    The Informer (1935)
    Jurassic Park (1993)
    The Lady From Shanghai (1947)
    Leave Her to Heaven (1945)
    Monterey Pop (1968)
    My Fair Lady (1964)
    The Navigator (1924)
    On the Town (1949)
    One-Eyed Jacks (1961)
    Pickup on South Street (1953)
    Rebecca (1940)
    The Shining (1980)
    Smoke Signals (1998)
    Something Good – Negro Kiss (1898)

And the official announcement on the National Film Registry site.

The National Film Registry Turns 30!
'Brokeback Mountain,' 'Jurassic Park,' 'My Fair Lady' Among the Titles Added

https://www.loc.gov/item/prn-18-144/library-of-congress-national-film-registry-turns-30/2018-12-12/

"Two contemporary Western dramas headline this year’s list: the 1961 “One-Eyed Jacks,” Marlon Brando’s only directorial endeavor, and Ang Lee’s critically acclaimed “Brokeback Mountain.” Released in 2005, “Brokeback Mountain” also has the distinction of becoming the newest film on the registry while the 1891 “Newark Athlete” is the oldest."

Vincent, Diana Ossana said over on Facebook that it is the youngest movie to ever make it into the collection. This says so much about this amazing film.

^^^^ WOW.  That sums it up!  TY for reminding us to nominate it. 
Ossana and Lee must be flying high!  I feel *@(*@ vindicated and proud that we ran that Variety Ad all those many years ago now.  What a ride.  I do not think or have heard of the fans of any film since doing that.  V.

I've rejoined the forum after an absence of several years.  I think there used to be a Fan Fiction thread, but I can't find it.  Any suggestions on where it might be?

This is a new article from this year. Most of us already know a lot of what is in the article, but a couple of the things were new to me. Just thought I'd share it.

^^^ very good article.  Did not know the last one about Lee's brush with quitting the business before BBM. 
Newman and Redford or Cliff would have done well - but there's no way BBM could have been made in 1960's.  :(
Damon and Affleck may, just maybe, could have pulled it off...

BTW, the comments on the shirts surprised me.  Weren't the shirts donated to The Autry Museum in Griffith Park?  https://theautry.org/

I do not recall if they were on loan or became a permanent donation now. I dropped a few photos from that visit there into the link below.  Since I do not post photos often, yell if I didn't do it right.  The link should take you directly to the folder.

There are some photos of members and one of John.  If you do not want me me posting these here, PM and I'll remove them.

Hi Vincent. I hope you are well.
The shirts were only on loan to the Autry by Tom Gregory and I'd heard that he had since taken them back, but I did go to the Autry Museum site and it has a currently on view exhibit that states that the shirts are on view in this exhibit


Ted and Marian Craver
Imagination Gallery
Now on View
The Autry in Griffith Park


Almost every iconic cowboy—including William S. Hart, Bill Pickett, Tom Mix, Gene Autry, Roy Rogers, Duncan Renaldo, James Arness, John Wayne, and Clint Eastwood—is represented in the gallery. Such cowgirls as Patsy Montana, Betty Hutton, and Katharine Hepburn are also represented, as well as artifacts and posters from Thelma and Louise (1991) and the iconic shirts from Brokeback Mountain (2005).

Thanks Vincent and Lyle.
I'm so glad to see that articles are still being written about Brokeback Mountain even 15 years later.

I am still in contact with Gregory Hinton and he was in the process of trying to get a celebration together to commemorate the 15th anniversary, but I would imagine all the virus ramifications have put this on hold.

Bryon from Mandance was also going to put a program together as well. I still have to speak to him to see what is going to happen.
