‘Jurassic Park,’ ‘Brokeback Mountain’ Among Films Added To The National Film Registry

There is also “Something Good — Negro Kiss,” a newly discovered 29-second film that, according to scholars and archivists, was part of American cinema history from the late 19th century.
Cinema was only a few years old in 1898 and distributors, struggling to entice audiences to this new medium, tried to find acceptable “risqué” fare that included a brief run of “kissing” films.
“Something Good” featured vaudeville actors Saint Suttle and Gertie Brown and is the earliest- known surviving Selig Polyscope Company film.
Here is the complete list of the films added to the 2018 National Film Registry:
    • “Bad Day at Black Rock” (1955)
