Sorry, Wrong Number (1948) is based on a popular radio play—one of the most popular radio plays of all time—that stars Barbara Stanwyck as Leona Stevenson, a spoiled, rich, bedridden woman who accidentally overhears a plot to murder an unidentified woman. In her attempt to report the incident to the police, Stanwyck begins to suspect that it is her husband (Burt Lancaster) who wants her murdered. The role of Leona was a tour-de-force for Stanwyck, earning her an Academy Award nomination—her fourth—for Best Actress.
