WAIT UNTIL DARK
1967, Warner Bros., 108 min, USA, Dir: Terence Young

The original tagline perfectly captures the spine-tingling chill of Terence Young’s notorious thriller: “The blinds moving up and down… The squeaking shoes… And then the knife whistling past her ear.” Audrey Hepburn stars as Susy Hendrix, a blind woman terrorized by a duo of thugs and psychopathic mastermind Roat (Alan Arkin) as they search for a doll stuffed with heroin believed to be in her apartment. Hepburn received an Oscar nomination for Best Actress for her frighteningly believable performance.

1961, Paramount, 115 min, Dir: Blake Edwards

Adapted from Truman Capote’s best-selling romance by director Blake Edwards (THE PINK PANTHER, THE PARTY) and featuring arguably Henry Mancini’s greatest score.
