      1. There’s a somewhat current film (2017) that uses the Don’t Hang Up theme as a title. I don’t know if the song is included, but the movie is scary. And there’s a Dennis the Menace episode (maybe a modern version of the series), which is more light-hearted. Both are about prank phone calls. Thanks for listening. Have a wonderful day!❤️
