I do think WHEN HARRY MET SALLY and HAIRSPRAY are outstanding movies that will be enjoyed through the ages. Do they really need a restoration? Or is this just a list of films deemed culturally "significant"?
The problem with THE GODFATHER and BUTCH CASSIDY (not so sure about EXORCIST) is they used weird vegetable dyes on the film that faded badly. The 70's: all orange-all the time. I also think film of that era is particularly grainy.
As a cultural historian, choices like Mardi Gras Carnival from 1898 and Cab Calloway's home movies strike me as thrilling little documents of the past. But really-NO other silent films?
