The third in our Stanwyck Noir series, SORRY WRONG NUMBER, screens August 20

Directed by Anatole Litvack
USA, 1948, 35mm, 89 min., B&W

Barbara Stanwyck gets a chance to really sink her teeth into a big, show-stopping role in SORRY WRONG NUMBER. She plays a spoiled heiress in an unhappy marriage who spends the climactic chapters of the film bedridden. When she is accidentally patched into a telephone conversation between two men plotting a crime, she becomes terrified and from there the suspense builds to the point of hysteria. Stanwyck, always such an excellent performer, plays this suspense material for all it’s worth. She’s aided and abetted by her co-stars Burt Lancaster and Ed Begley in this noirish classic.
