Don’t answer that phone !!

A brilliant Anatol Litvak film- noir, made in 1948, starring Barbara Stanwyck & Burt Lancaster, set in Manhattan:
“SORRY, WRONG NUMBER”.

The pieces of the story are beautifully put together by other people’s reconstruction & reportage over the phone.
The spoiled character of Stanwyck finds herself randomly at the center of a conspiracy connected together by a very ominous object, a phone. This depiction of the object later made it through American Slasher films like the “Scream” series.

    1. Glad you like the post Michael ! Join the blog for your daily dose of cinematic needs. I’m trying to highlight these beautiful films-noir. Litvak did such a great job, don’t you think? & I’m glad Stanwyck got nominated for the Academy Award !
