America's Library of Congress has announced that Roman Polanski's horror movie 'Rosemary's Baby' has been added to the National Film Registry, alongside 24 other films.
The honour is solely bestowed upon works that are deemed to be "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant."
Polanski's quirky 1968 film - the first he made in America - was based on Ira Levin's best-selling novel of the same name.
The plot revolves around a young New York couple, Rosemary and Guy, who move into an apartment building (pictured above) that has a reputation for strange goings on.
The pair becomes entangled with an eccentric elderly couple next door, and Rosemary, played by Mia Farrow in the movie, begins to suspect that something is not quite right after she falls pregnant.
Besides Polanski at the helm, the film is also famed for its haunting soundtrack by legendary Polish jazz composer Krzysztof Komeda.
Other films to be inducted into the National Film Registry this December include Steven Spielberg's Saving Private Ryan, the Cohen Brothers' The Big Lebowski and cult high school romp Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.
Meanwhile, Polanski, who fled the US in 1978 while being tried for unlawful sex with a minor, has taken his extradition case to a court in Los Angeles after a recent attempt by the US authorities to detain him in Poland.
