The classic 1960's film "Breakfast at Tiffany's" has been added to the National Film Registry at the Library of Congress. The 1961 film starred Audrey Hepburn in her signature role as a Manhattan call girl named Holly Golightly.
It was adapted from Truman Capote's story of the same name and joins a diverse selection of 25 films entering the registry this year. Other notable entries include "The Matrix," "A League of Their Own," and the original version of "3:10 to Yuma."
"These films are not selected as the best American films of all time, but rather as works of enduring importance to American culture," Librarian of Congress James M. Billington said in a statement released Wednesday morning. "They reflect who we are as a people and as a nation."
Each film selected for the registry is chosen because it has been deemed "culturally, historically or aesthetically significant."
