Wait Until Dark

Nashville Scene

DIRECTED BY: Terence Young

REVIEWED: 11-03-97

Audrey Hepburn plays a blind woman at the center of a cruel con game, as Alan Arkin and his criminal buddies sneak into her apartment under false pretenses to locate a doll stuffed with heroin. This classy suspense film is best remembered for its climax, wherein the principals stumble around in pitch blackness trying to kill each other. It also carries surprising emotional weight, thanks to Arkin's cunning and Hepburn's blend of pluckiness and self-pity. This is one of the rare scary movies where the audience really cares what happens to the hero (not to mention the heroin).
