Sorry, Wrong Number (1948)
Henry Stevenson: [to Leona] I want you to do something. I want you to get yourself out of the bed, and get over to the window and scream as loud as you can. Otherwise you only have another three minutes to live.
[opening title card]
[Prologue]: In the tangled networks of a great city, the telephone is the unseen link between a million lives... it is the servant of our common needs ~~ the confidante of our inmost secrets... life and happiness wait upon its ring... and horror... and loneliness... and... death!
Leona Stevenson: No! Please! don't! Please, I'll... I'll give you anything! Please! Ahhhhhh!
Henry Stevenson: You can't live on dreams forever. Waiting only weakens you and your dream. My motto is: "If you want something, get it now!"
Henry Stevenson: Besides, what does a dame like you want with a guy like me?
