Anatole Litvak's gripping thriller stars Barbara Stanwyck as bed ridden New York heiress Leona Stevenson, whose only access to the outside world is through her husband Henry (Burt Lancaster) or via the telephone. One night while trying to reach her husband at the office, the number is misdialled and she overhears two men planning to kill a woman later that evening. With the clock ticking can she prevent the murder? Adapted for the screen by Lucille Fletcher from her legendary 1943 radio play, Sorry, Wrong Number is a tense, stylish Mystery/ Drama with excellent performances from Stanwyck and Lancaster.
