THE WRONG MAN (1956) True story of an innocent man, played by Henry Fonda ,mistaken for a criminal in this once underrated classic. The Wrong Man had a notable effect on Martin Scorsese for TAXI DRIVER . Bernard Herrmann composed the soundtrack. If you’ve read any of the biographies about Alfred Hitchcock at all you know of his fear of being locked up and his distrust of the police. This film is the perfect manifestation of those fears and ironically it’s based on a true story. In fact the movie opens with the director’s shadowed figure speaking “what you are about to hear is absolutely true”.
