Tense suspense involving a blind woman (Hepburn)who has inadvertently acquired an antique doll full of heroin which vicious killers try to get their hands on.
From The Movie Guide: "A real edge-of-your-seat thriller adapted from a Broadway stage hit written by Frederick Knott, author of DIAL M FOR MURDER. ... Expertly directed by veteran British helmsman Young (Arthur Penn directed the stage version), WAIT UNTIL DARK is an exciting, original chiller. Hepburn turns in a strong, realistic performance as the terrorized blind woman --- a role she researched diligently with the help of two young blind woman from the Lighthouse for the Blind school. For weeks the actress (and director Young) wore a special shade over her eyes and learned how to use a cane properly, feel the texture of different objects, and listen carefully to distinguish the quality and distance of sounds. The film was a tremendous success at the box office, and for added effect, some theater owners turned the house lights off completely during the final 15 minutes."
