Helen Hill film entered into the US's National Film Registry

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.
