Butch And Sundance Added To Registry

Movie classics BUTCH CASSIDY AND THE SUNDANCE KID, NATIONAL VELVET, YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN and PATTON are among the 25 films to be added to America's NATIONAL FILM REGISTRY.

Every year, authorities at the country's Library of Congress list 25 "culturally, historically or aesthetically significant" films they feel should be preserved for all time in the National Film Registry.

Librarian of Congress JAMES BILLINGTON says, "Our film heritage is America's living past. It celebrates the creativity and inventiveness of diverse communities and our nation as a whole."

The new list isn't without controversy - one film, TARZAN + HIS MATE, featured early movie actor and swimming champ JOHNNY WEISSMULLER swimming naked.

The scene was considered too racy for the release of the 1934 movie and was cut. It was only restored to the film in 1994.
