‘The Matrix,’ ‘Dirty Harry,’ and More Added to National Film Registry

We’ve lost something close to 3/4 of black and white films.

(I don’t think anyone actually wears such a hat in the film, to the best of my recollection, but let’s not split hairs—pun intended. The fez looks great and so does the Freedonia emblem.) Apparently, the folks at...
