'Fargo,' 'Blazing Saddles' Added to National Film Registry

Cary Grant and Ingrid Bergman's work in the Alfred Hitchock classic "Notorious" joined the Mel Brooks comedy "Blazing Saddles" and the black comedy "Fargo" as part of the 25 films to be added to the national film registry by the Library of Congress.
