Barbara Stanwyck Trailer of the Day: Sorry, Wrong Number


One of the key noirs of the late 1940s, the claustrophobic SORRY, WRONG NUMBER puts a murderous spin on the idea of the telephone as sole connector to the outside world. Stanwyck, in an Oscar-nominated performance, plays Leona Stevenson, a rich, bedridden heiress who overhears a vague murder plot when an operator accidentally crosses lines. Her absent husband Henry (Burt Lancaster) may be involved, but Leona quickly learns that there may be more deceit in store. “Told nearly in real time and almost entirely through telephone calls, the radio play-based NUMBER derives sleek hysteria from its audaciously constraining narrative strategy.”—Village Voice (89 mins.)
