The Library of Congress’ National Film Registry program reached 400 titles with the latest additions. An ongoing film series at the Library’s resident Mary Pickford Theater calls systematic attention to titles still eligible for the next Registry list. Jack Cardiff’s 1960 movie version of D.H. Lawrence’s Sons and Lovers, which co-starred Wendy Hiller, Trevor Howard and Dean Stockwell, will be showcased today at 7 p.m. The Beast from 20,000 Fathoms, a low-budget science-fiction thriller of 1953 that introduced the miniature work of Ray Harryhausen, will be shown at the same time tomorrow. Otto Preminger’s The 13th Letter, which transposed Henri-Georges Clouzot’s small-town poison-pen thriller “Le Corbeau” from France in 1943 to Quebec in 1951, gets the Registry spotlight on Tuesday at 7 p.m. All screenings are free, but seating is limited to 64. The Pickford is located on the third floor of the James Madison Building, 101 Pennsylvania Ave. SE. 202/707-4604.

You have just one more week to see the unusual art of husband and wife Claudia DeMonte and Ed McGowin (also known as T.M. Dossett) at Bethesda’s Osuna Gallery. Though married for more than 30 years, the former Washingtonians make very different art. In Claudia DeMonte: Female Fetish, the feminist artist creates objects associated with women, such as life-sized models of high heels decorated with shiny pewter ornaments. In Ed McGowin aka T.M. Dossett: New Work, the former Mississippian makes wooden relief sculptures reflecting what he describes as “putting two cultures such as slavery and the defeated South together and reflecting on what happens.” To show his different art styles of 1970, he legally changed his name 12 times in several courts. At Osuna, Artery Plaza Lobby, 7200 Wisconsin Ave., Bethesda. 11:30 a.m. through 5:30 p.m. Tuesdays through Sundays, through Jan. 12. Free. 301/654-4500.
