DescriptionSorry, Wrong Number (Paramount, 1948). Fine/Very Fine on Linen. One Sheet (27" X 41").
Barbara Stanwyck often played powerful and independent women in her more than one hundred films, but in this film noir thriller, she is Leona Stevenson, a neurotic invalid who overhears a murder plot via crossed telephone wires. Her fear and paranoia mount as she realizes it is her murder that is being planned, and that her flawed and resentful husband, Henry (Burt Lancaster) is involved. Touchup has been applied to fold wear and separations, some tears, and minor chips, a few of which have splices. Faint writing bleedthrough is still visible in the title and Barbara Stanwyck's image, as are a couple of tape stains and subtle image ghosting. The linen has been trimmed to the borders.
Estimate: $400 - $800.
