It may be the summer of such blockbuster spectacles as "Man of Steel," "The Lone Ranger" and "World War Z," but it's also the summer of movies by a real-life legend: Alfred Hitchcock. His films are screening at several venues around L.A. in the coming weeks. Some of them will be familiar to audiences, others not. On Tuesday at the Samuel Goldwyn Theater, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences is showing both the sound and silent versions of his 1929 thriller "Blackmail.

With his acute sense of irony and the macabre, Alfred Hitchcock would appreciate the fact that he's one of the hottest directors in the world even though he's been dead for 32 years. Fans and critics have always been fascinated with the Master of Suspense, who directed such seminal films as 1940's "Rebecca," 1945's "Spellbound," 1946's "Notorious," 1954's "Rear Window," 1960's "Psycho" and 1963's "The Birds. " But 2012 has been an exceptional year in the Hitchcock legacy. For decades, the British Film Institute's periodical Sight and Sound's poll of critics named Orson Welles' 1941 masterwork "Citizen Kane" the best movie ever made.

" "Limelight," turned out to be Chaplin's final Hollywood film - and it brought back memories of the legendary actor and filmmaker's glory days. "He was like the young Charlie. I would sit in his old-time dressing room being made up with him and he was full of fire," said his friend, actor Norman Lloyd, who appears as a choreographer in the sentimental drama about a once famous clown named Calvero, who prevents troubled young ballerina Thereza (Claire Bloom)

Screenwriter Robert Bolt needed the time to finish the script on the complex tale of T.E. Lawrence, the young British intelligence officer in Cairo who helped the Arabs break up the Ottoman Empire. But then Bolt got arrested in London. A political activist, Bolt was jailed for protesting the proliferation of nuclear weapons. If he apologized for his actions, he wouldn't go to prison.
