July 9: Notorious (1946, 1h 42m, Not Rated)

This American spy film noir directed and produced by Alfred Hitchcock stars Cary Grant, Ingrid Bergman, and Claude Rains. Alicia Huberman (Bergman), the daughter of a convicted German war criminal, is recruited by a U.S. government agent (Grant) to infiltrate an organization of Nazis who have escaped to Rio de Janeiro after World War II. 

July 16: The Night of the Hunter (1955, 92m, Not Rated)

This American film noir thriller directed by Charles Laughton stars Robert Mitchum, Shelley Winters, and Lillian Gish. In the Deep South, a self-proclaimed preacher (Mitchum) marries a fragile widow (Winters) whose young children are reluctant to tell him where their father hid the $10,000 he had stolen in a robbery.  

July 23: Bad Day at Black Rock (1955, 81m, Not Rated)

This American neo-western crime drama directed by John Sturges stars Spencer Tracy and Robert Ryan. John Macreedy (Tracy), a one-armed war veteran, travels by train to a small, isolated desert town in search of a man named Komoko. Macreedy is met with disdain by virtually every local. As his investigation deepens, hostility turns to violence - and to imminent danger for the mysterious and inquisitive stranger.

July 30: Rear Window (1954, 1h 52m, Rated PG)

This American mystery thriller directed by Alfred Hitchcock stars James Stewart, Grace Kelly, Wendell Corey, Thelma Ritter, and Raymond Burr. A newspaper photographer (Stewart) with a broken leg passes time recuperating by observing his neighbors through his window. He sees what he believes to be a murder and decides to solve the crime himself. With the help of his socialite girlfriend (Kelly) and nurse (Ritter), he tries to catch the murderer without being killed himself.
