Audience Reviews for Sorry, Wrong Number
May 10, 2019Barbara Stanwyck definitely overacts in this film, even by 1948 standards.Joseph B Super Reviewer
Dec 21, 2016A great example of film noir, 'Sorry, Wrong Caller' has a taut script, with a bed-ridden woman getting connected into a phone call between thugs planning a murder that evening, and proceeding to tell her story in flashbacks as the fateful hour looms. Barbara Stanwyck plays her character very well, ranging from dominating rich girl to frightened invalid, and a young Burt Lancaster is her handsome husband who wants to be more than a kept man. Director Anatole Litvak includes some nice shots, including a creepy pan back from Stanwyck's bedroom, out her window, and down to the shadow of an approaching man, and he's also faithful to the original radio play, which I first read in McSweeney's 'Hitchcock and Bradbury Fistfight in Heaven'. Definitely worth checking out.
Mar 31, 2014A story of paranoia and suspense, it likely gets more positive airplay than it should. It isn't bad and Stanwyck's performance is good but it likely plays better in its original radio format.John B Super Reviewer
Sep 05, 2010Probably the first great telephone themed thriller ever. I highly recommend this movie.
