Every year in the United States, the National Film Registry and the librarian of Congress James H. Billington select "25 motion pictures that will be preserved as cultural, artistic and/or historical treasures for generations to come." This year's honourees included Michael Jackson's "Thriller" (for obvious reasons). But among the selections was a film that hits a little closer to home. Helen Hill's Scratch and Crow.
Here's a lovely, but still very sad, piece in the New Yorker about Hill and the significance of her short-lived career.
