National Film Registry is a new friend of mine. My new friend recently showed me this website with information on the National Film Registry, and let me tell you...I was scrolling up and down the list of movies that have not been added for like hours. I was really surprised at some of the titles on there that had yet to be added.

You can e-mail in your movie choices to and they ask for a limit of 50 choices (which, after looking at this list, is hard to narrow down). I highly recommend everyone sending in votes so we can all see some of our favorite film and film stars preserved for years and years to come. You can check out a list of those yet added here:

Here are a few of the highlights. Also known as the titles I sent my votes in for.

A Fool There Was (1915) starring Theda Bara

Camille (1921) starring Rudolph Valentino

The High Sign (1921) starring Buster Keaton

Extra Girl (1923) starring Mabel Normand

Flaming Youth (1923) starring Colleen Moore

Three Ages (1923) starring Buster Keaton

The Navigator (1924) starring Buster Keaton

The Merry Widow (1925) starring Mae Murray

Dancing Mothers (1926) starring Clara Bow

My Best Girl (1927) starring Mary Pickford

The Student Prince of Old Heidelberg (1927) starring Norma Shearer

Our Dancing Daughters (1928) starring Joan Crawford

Steamboat Bill Jr. (1928) starring Buster Keaton

Like I said, there are a ton of other titles, tons and tons of talkie pictures that deserve to be preserved too, but I just named the silents for obvious reasons. Ya'll agree with my choices?
