Wait Until Dark
First screening date unrecorded / Most recently screened in March 2008
Director: Terence Young. Cast: Audrey Hepburn, Alan Arkin, Richard Crenna, Efrem Zimbalist Jr., Samantha Jones, Jack Weston, Julie Herrod. Screenplay: Robert Carrington and Jane-Howard Carrington (based on the play by Frederick Knott).

Twitter Capsule: Nastier than you'd expect, with memorable frights. Hepburn keeps it interesting, giving her character real mettle.

VOR:   Without this, we'd probably never have gotten Hear No Evil or Blink. Think about that! Fondly recalled, well-rendered, but not a stretch.
