Director: Anatole Litvak
Slick cinema adaptation, by the author herself, of Lucille Fletcher's famed radio drama. Barbara Stanwyck is superb-and received an Oscar nomination-as an invalid who, due to those "crossed wires" so beloved in fiction, overhears two men plotting the murder of a woman.
Gradually, Stanwyck realizes that she is the target. 89 mins.
My Rating: ***
