The Library of Congress on Wednesday announced that 1994’s smash hit "Forrest Gump" starring Tom Hanks was one of 25 films chosen to be included this year in the National Film Registry.

The oldest reels are silent films both from 1912. "The Cry of the Children" is about the pre-World War I child labor reform movement and "A Cure for Pokeritis" features the industry’s earliest comic superstar John Bunny.

Also from the silent era is Charlie Chaplin’s first full-length feature, "The Kid," from 1921.
