Question

What common fear or fears do you think "Sorry, Right Number" and "The Open Window" play on?

Solution

Verified

Both Sorry, Right Number and "The Open Window" seem to play with the idea of what we should really fear. Mr. Nuttel is startled and scared by what he believes to be ghosts in "The Open Window;" he is terrified of something that is not actually happening. Similarly, Katie believes when she receives the phone call that she should be worried about one of the women in her life being hurt when, in fact, it is Bill's upcoming heart attack that she should be afraid of. Both characters misjudge what they should really fear in the story.
