Wait Until Dark


1970       Audrey Hepburn

Lisa (SAMANTHA JONES) is acting as a narcotics courier when she meets Sam Hendrix (EFREM ZIMBALIST, JR.) on a plane from Montreal. When they arrive in New York, she passes a doll containing smuggled heroin to the innocent Sam as part of her scheme to double-cross the syndicate's boss, Roat (ALAN ARKIN).

Con-men Mike Talman (RICHARD CRENNA) and Carlino (JACK WESTON) keep a rendezvous in a Greenwich Village apartment they believe to be Lisa's. They are joined by Roat, who has murdered Lisa. He blackmails Mike and Carlino into helping him dispose of the body. They also join him in a plan to get the doll from Sam Hendrix's wife, Susy (AUDREY HEPBURN).

Since Susy is blind, a neighbor's child, Gloria (JULIE HERROD), helps with the chores and, in Sam's absences, acts as Susy's "eyes." Sam, a freelance photographer, is lured away from the apartment on a phony job assignment and the three thugs go about their plan to get Susy to turn over the doll to them.

Mike calls on

Susy, gains her confidence and charms her. Susy admits that Sam did bring home a doll, but she doesn't know where it is now. Gloria, who had taken the doll, without Susy's knowing, sneaks back into the apartment after Mike has left and leaves it under the sofa.

Susy discovers the doll and, still thinking Mike is a friend, telephones him with the good news. Cautious because of the unusual interest in this doll, and unsettled because of the discovery of a dead woman's body (Lisa's) in the neighborhood, she arranges a set of signals with Gloria, who is watching upstairs.

Through the signal system with Gloria, Susy suddenly realizes that she is being victimized by the three strangers. She sends Gloria to get Sam. When she goes to call the police, she learns that the line has been cut and that she is at the mercy of the thugs until help can come.

Realizing her disadvantage of sightlessness, Susy smashes all the lights, except one. Meanwhile, Carlino has been killed by Roat in an attempt on Roat s life. Mike tries to help Susy and is knifed by Root.

Roat then proceeds to terrorize Susy with the threat of setting the place afire. Susy manages to douse the last light and Roat finds himself at war with a blind girl in a darkness she knows better than he.
