These are some of the indelible images from films deemed by the National Film Registry to "continue to have cultural, historical or aesthetic significance".

The films are:

“Baby Face” (1933)
“The Buffalo Creek Flood: An Act of Man” (1975)
“The Cameraman” (1928)
Commandment Keeper Church, Beaufort, S.C., May 1940 (1940)
“Cool Hand Luke” (1967)
“Fast Times at Ridgemont High” (1982)
“The French Connection” (1971)
“Giant” (1956)
“H2O” (1929)
“Hands Up” (1926)
“Hoop Dreams” (1994)
“House of Usher” (1960)
“Imitation of Life” (1934)
Jeffries-Johnson world championship fight (1910)
“Making of an American” (1920)
“Miracle on 34th Street” (1947)
“Mom and Dad” (1944)
“The Music Man” (1962)
“Power of the Press” (1928)
“A Raisin in the Sun” (1961)
“The Rocky Horror Picture Show” (1975)
San Francisco earthquake and fire, April 18, 1906 (1906)
“The Sting” (1973)
“A Time for Burning” (1966)
“Toy Story” (1995)

I wonder if the 32% who cited Fast Times at Ridgemont High as their favorite from this list are the same 32% who still think Saddam Hussein was involved in 9/11 and that George W. Bush is a good, honest, Christian man.

Don't get me wrong; I can deconstruct the Jeff Spicoli Family Tree of Movie Stoners with the best of them, but as charmingly dour as Fast Times is, I don't know that I'd put it ahead of The Sting or Cool Hand Luke.

And where the hell is Say Anything on this list, anyway?
