Disney’s “Sleeping Beauty” and “Old Yeller” Added to National Film Registry

The annual list of influential films that span both genres and decades was announced Wednesday by Librarian of Congress Carla Hayden.

Among the considered films for 2019 were 6,000 nominated by the public.

The films, chosen in consultation with the National Film Preservation Board and library specialists include the 1959 Disney classic Sleeping Beauty and the Disney-produced Old Yeller from 1957.

“The National Film Registry has become an important record of American history, culture and creativity.”

– Carla Hayden, Librarian of Congress

The latest selections bring the number of films in the registry to 775, a fraction of the Library of Congress’ moving-image collection of more than 1.6 million titles.
