    Synopsis


    Wait Until Dark
    Wait Until Dark is an innovative, highly entertaining and suspenseful thriller about a blind housewife, Susy Hendrix (Audrey Hepburn). Independent and resourceful, Susy is learning to cope with her blindness, which resulted from a recent accident. She is aided by her difficult, slightly unreliable young neighbor Gloria (Julie Herrod) with whom she has an exasperated but lovingly maternal relationship. Susy's life is changed as she is terrorized by a group of criminals who believe she has hidden a baby doll used by them to smuggle heroin into the country. Unknown to Susy, her photographer husband Sam (Efrem Zimbalist Jr.) took the doll as a favor for a woman he met on an international plane flight and unwittingly brought the doll to the couple's New York apartment when the woman became afraid of the customs officials. Alone in her apartment and cut-off from the outside world, Susy must fight for her life against a gang of ruthless criminals, led by the violent, psychotic Roat (Alan Arkin). The tension builds as Roat, aided by his gang, impersonates police officers and friends of her husband in order to win Susy's confidence, gaining access to her apartment to look for the doll. The climax of the film, a violent physical confrontation between Susie and Roat in her dark kitchen, is one of the most memorable and frightening scenes in screen history. All performances are outstanding, particularly those of Audrey Hepburn who plays a vulnerable, but self-reliant woman, and Alan Arkin, in perhaps his best role, as the ruthless, manipulative Roat. ~ Linda Rasmussen, Rovi

      Warner Archive Collection continues to pour out a perfect picture/sound presentation. In this case, it's Wait Until Dark. And I stress, you MUST watch it in total darkness...no lights in the hall either, or you'll be cheating yourself out of the experience. This experience was designed for total darkness, especially in the final 10 minutes. Which is also why a perfect BD transfer was necessary for this thriller film. And perfect is what you'll get !!! BTW, Audrey Hepburn was nominated for this role and for good reason.

      Audrey Hepburn is great here in a role different from the ones people typically associate her with. The movie is very clearly adapted from a stage play (the location rarely changes), but works well in creating a claustrophobic, isolated tone. Video and audio are both great, and this includes all the special features from the DVD release save the text-based information.

      I was a teenager when this movie was first released and, as the tension ratcheted up, I was on the edge of my seat. It was a great scare. I did not see this movie again until now. It holds up very well. If you want a thriller that truly involves you with the heroine and delivers a good scare, this is a film for you.

      You will enjoy great performance from both Alan Arkin and Audrey Hepburn. When I saw this movie when it was first released in 1967, the theater was completely dark, and no one was allowed to be in or out during the climax scene. I would suggest you to watch this movie in completely darkness. You will see why.
