NOIR CITY 20: SORRY WRONG NUMBER / KISS THE BLOOD OFF MY HANDS
Sorry, Wrong Number (7:00)
Originally released September 1, 1948
Paramount. 89 minutes
Screenplay by Lucille Fletcher, from her radio play
Produced by Hal Wallis and Anatole Litvak
Directed by Anatole Litvak
Bedridden heiress Leona Stevenson (Barbara Stanwyck) hears through crossed telephone wires a murder being planned. She tries to alert the police, to no avail, and grows frantic as she gradually realizes she is the intended victim. Stanwyck gives an Oscar®-nominated performance in this engrossing and densely layered extension of the legendary 22-minute radio drama. Featuring Burt Lancaster in one of his earliest roles, mesmerizing direction by Anatole Litvak, and atmospheric camerawork by the great Sol Polito. Famous...yet still underrated.


Kiss the Blood Off My Hands (9:00)
Originally released October 29, 1948
Universal-International. 79 minutes
Screenplay by Leonardo Bercovici, Ben Maddow, and Walter Bernstein, based on the novel by Gerald Butler
Produced by Harold Hecht and Burt Lancaster
Directed by Norman Foster
War profiteering, 1940s-style, is the backdrop of this London-set noir, in which a traumatized American GI (Burt Lancaster) goes on the run after killing a man in a pub. Joan Fontaine is his only hope for salvation, Robert Newton his nemesis. The first film produced by Lancaster's Norma Productions, which recreated twenty square blocks of London on the Universal backlot, brilliantly photographed by Russell Metty. Miklós Rózsa contributed the highly effective score.


All FNF proceeds from festival ticket sales aid the foundation's mission of rescuing and restoring noir films.
