Sorry, Wrong Number
Noir thriller featuring Barbara Stanwyck as a wealthy, bedridden woman who overhears plans for murder.
Dir Anatole Litvak
With Barbara Stanwyck, Burt Lancaster, Ann Richards, Wendell Corey
Adapted (and greatly expanded) by Lucille Fletcher from her acclaimed radio play, this noir thriller centres on a wealthy, rather complacent, bedridden woman (Stanwyck) who overhears, on a crossed phone line, a conversation involving a planned murder. Will she be able to fathom who the victim is, and warn her? Stanwyck heads a superb cast that also includes Ed Begley, William Conrad and Leif Erikson.
