Wait Until Dark

  • Dir: Terence Young

  • USA, 1967, 108minmins, 35mm

  • Cast: Audrey Hepburn, Alan Arkin, Efrem Zimbalist Jr.

A suspense thriller in which Hepburn demonstrates her performance range by playing a blind woman terrorized by a trio of thugs searching for a heroin-stuffed doll in her apartment. So frail and delicate, she skillfully pulls us into her state of palpable desolation, attracting sympathy and anxiety that gives her solidity in the battle against Alan Arkin’s cool, ruthless cunningness. Plunging into darkness, veteran James Bond director Terence Young brings a celebrated climax that leaves audiences frightened if the lights will ever come on again.

1968 Academy Awards, Best Actress nomination
