Sorry, Wrong Number chosen for National Recording Registry
The 1945 radio play Sorry, Wrong Number, written by Lucille Fletcher and starring Agnes Moorehead, has been chosen for inclusion in the National Registry of recordings at the Library of Congress.
This classic radio play was later adapted for the classic film of the same name, starring Barbara Stanwyck and Burt Lancaster. But if you’ve never heard the radio play, you really should. It’s gripping.
I learned about the inclusion in the National Registry on Studio 360, which has a terrific series focusing on recordings added to the registry each year. Their discussion of the play is well worth hearing.
