Wait Until Dark (1967)
Movie Review by The Mortician

Wait Until Dark (1967) Classic suspense thriller starring Audrey Hepburn that still holds up well today! Ms. Hepburn plays a blind woman named Suzy who is harassed by thugs in her apartment looking for a doll she accidentally ended up with that is full of heroin. It's a pretty simple premise, based on a stage play, but what makes it work is the way the thugs have to deal with the situation since number one- she's blind, and number two- she honestly doesn't know where the doll is. Alan Arkin, Richard Crenna, and Jack Weston are brilliant as the thugs who take on "different roles" in order to try getting the doll's location out of the blind woman. But Suzy picks up on subtle inconsistencies with her hearing (like one man's shoes squeaking like it's the SAME man!)...and then there's the issue of where her husband is and how he fits into this scenario...and let's not forget the bratty upstairs little kid neighbor that does Suzy's grocery shopping...will this annoying little pill be able to assist Suzy when things get rather nasty? WAIT UNTIL DARK is a different kind of movie, the kind they don't make too much anymore these days, where there's character development and escalating suspense continually mounting as the crooks get more and more desperate to find that doll. There are many classic moments involving the men searching the apartment "under the blind woman's nose" and even trying to get a dead body out of there before she notices. As the movie unfolds, of course the thugs cannot get along and begin to screw each other over and the tension ratchets up to new levels as the final confrontation between heroine and villains reaches a fever pitch! Will a simple but resilient blind woman be able to out-think and overcome these baddies, especially when her life depends on it? The last twenty minutes of this flick are particularly outstanding, and you can see very much how the classic ending of THE SILENCE OF THE LAMBS (where Jodie Foster tracked down Jame Gumb in his basement in the dark) was obviously inspired by this movie. So if you like slow burn suspense thrillers that have aged like a fine wine, then you'll absolutely love WAIT UNTIL DARK. Give this Oscar nominated movie a shot, you might be pleasantly surprised!
