Wait until Dark, based on Frederick Knott’s legit hit, emerges as an excellent suspense drama, effective in casting, scripting, direction and genuine emotional impact. Audrey Hepburn stars as the not-so-helpless blind heroine, in a superior performance.

Plot turns on a supposedly hapless femme protagonist, an accident-blinded Hepburn. Hubby Efrem Zimbalist Jr has made his wife self-sufficient and reasonably able to fend for herself in their apartment home.

Zimbalist accidentally plays into the hands of heroin-smuggling Samantha Jones who plants a dope-loaded doll in his possession. Alan Arkin disposes of Jones, then hires Richard Crenna and Jack Weston to intimidate Hepburn into surrendering the doll.
