July 25—Strangers on a Train
Strangers on a Train

A chance encounter between a lackadaisical playboy and a fading tennis star on a speeding Washington, D.C. train leads to an ominous discussion of the perfect murder. Bruno despises his domineering father and wants him dead to acquire his wealth; Guy wishes to shed his shrewish wife and marry the woman he loves. Bruno suggests they switch murders, thereby evading police detection. Over Guy’s objections, Bruno sets the plot in motion and blackmails Guy into performing his role in the sinister scheme. Hitchcock shot the film in Washington. Farley Granger, Robert Walker, Patricia Hitchcock, Marion Lorne. Not rated, 101 minutes, B&W, 1951. Nominated for an Academy Award.

August 1—The Man Who Knew Too Much
Man Who Knew Too Much

Dr. Ben McKenna, his wife Jo and their young son Hank are on a touring holiday of Morocco when they accidently stumble upon a plot to assassinate an ambassador at London’s Royal Albert Hall. Fearing that their plot will be revealed, the assassins kidnap Hank in order to keep the McKennas silent. Hitchcock’s exotic thriller was a remake of his 1934 British film of the same title. He considered his first effort the work of a rank amateur; the second the work of a polished professional. James Stewart, Doris Day, Brenda De Banzie, Christopher Olsen. Not rated, 120 minutes, color, 1956. Nominated for an Academy Award.

August 8—Dial M for Murder
Dial M for Murder

A suave English tennis player plots the perfect murder to dispatch his wealthy wife who had a brief, passionate love affair with an American author of detective novels. There is only one problem—there is no such thing as the ”perfect” murder. When a twist of fate spoils the husband’s original plan, he quickly improvises a more devious way to achieve his objective. Based on the smash play of the same name, Hitchcock’s deft direction quickly turns the action of the film from a “whodunit” into a “who can figure it our first.” Grace Kelly, Ray Milland, Robert Cummings. Not rated, 105 minutes, color, 1954.
