Matthew Broderick's 1986 comedy Ferris Bueller's Day Off has been selected for preservation in America's National Film Registry along with The Big Lebowski and Saving Private Ryan.

The three films are among the latest batch of movies which have been declared national treasures and will be preserved for future generations by the U.S. Library of Congress.

Other films among the 25 picks include 1971's Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, Roman Polanski's classic Rosemary's Baby, 1953 horror House of Wax starring Vincent Price, John Wayne's Rio Bravo, and Little Big Man starring Dustin Hoffman.

Librarian of Congress representative James Billington says of the new additions, "By preserving these films, we protect a crucial element of American creativity, culture and history."

The films are chosen for their cultural significance.
