TCM Guest Programmer June 2013: Joseph Abboud

TCM waited until the end of the month to have this month's Guest Programmer come on to present four of his favorite movies. That guest programmer is Joseph Abboud, a men's fashion designer. I suppose it would be nice if we could get a discussion of men's fashion in the movies, but I don't think that's really on the cards for tonight; instead, it's a selection of reasonably well-known classic films:

They Died With Their Boots On, a highly fictionalized telling of the life of George Armstrong Custer, starring Errol Flynn as the doomed general, kicks off the evening at 8:00 PM.
That's followed at 10:30 PM by Alfred Hitchcock's Rebecca, in which Joan Fontaine comes to suspect something happened involving the death of her husband's (Laurence Olivier) first wife;
Alfred Hitchcock returns for Notorious at 1:00 AM; and
Humphrey Bogart hides letters of transit from Conrad Veidt in Casablanca at 3:00 AM.
