Today, in 1991, "The Blood of Jesus" was chosen as one of 25 films added to the Library of Congress's National Film Registry. The director of this film was a black man name Spencer William. His 1941 movie is about an atheist who shoots his Baptist wife by mistake. She dies and goes to an afterlife crossroads, where the devil tries to lead her astray.
To be chosen as an addition to the Library of Congress's National Film Registry is certainly an honor. Here is how they are chosen:
The Librarian/Board will continue to select up to 25 "culturally, historically or aesthetically significant films" each year for the National Film Registry. To be eligible, films must be at least 10 years old, though they need not be feature-length or have had a theatrical release in order to be considered. The legislation's intent is that the broadest possible range of films be eligible for consideration.
