Sorry, Wrong Number

 Starring Barbara Stanwyck, Burt Lancaster, Ann Richards, Wendell Corey.

The suspense runs high in this nail-biting story told in real time of a bedridden woman who answers the phone only to hear two men planning a murder—hers. Her husband is delayed at work, and the servants have the night off. Repeated phone calls only compound her mounting terror. Stanwyck received a well-deserved Academy Award nomination for her frantic portrayal.

The film, according to Newsweek, “has a soundness that is not very often achieved in film rewrites of such delicate stage material.” Not on video.

Mark Twain

Starring Fredric March, Alexis Smith, Donald Crisp, Alan Hale.

America’s most celebrated humorist and satirist is given top treatment in this biographical saga. One New York City critic wrote, “This is a picture not to be missed. Irving Rapper, one of Hollywood’s most sensitive directors, made the film, and Jesse L. Lasky, of Sergeant York note, produced it. This is screen 
biography at its best.”

Special Guests: Composers John Morgan and William Stromberg, who restored Max Steiner’s music score.

The top-flight cast provides masterful comedic timing in whatThe Hollywood Reporter judged to be “an audience winner from way back in the balcony. What can you lose?”

Miracle on 34th Street

Edmund Gwenn is Kris Kringle, and the motion picture industry agreed when it awarded him the Best Supporting Actor Oscar for his winning portrayal of Christmas’s kindly benefactor. This contemporary tale is set around Macy’s department store in Manhattan, its annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, and a “modern” mother and daughter jaded to the notion of Santa Claus. The film also won an Oscar for its writer, Valentine Davies, for Best Story.

Director: George Seaton.

Film: O. Henry's Full House

O. Henry’s Full House

 Starring Charles Laughton, Richard Widmark, Marilyn Monroe, Anne Baxter.

Novelist John Steinbeck introduces five short stories from noted American writer William Sydney Porter, whose nom de plume is O. Henry. Each of the stories—“The Cop and the Anthem,” “The Clarion Call,” “The Last Leaf,” “The Ransom of Red Chief,” and “The Gift of the Magi”—were written by major screenwriters, directed by A-list directors, and featured top stars. The film offers what one reviewer judged is “everything an audience can ask for: laughs, pathos that comes close to tears, melodrama and rich irony.”

20th Century-Fox. 1952. 1 hr. 57 mins.

Directors: Henry Koster, Henry Hathaway, Jean Negulesco, Howard Hawks, 
Henry King.
