Quotes & Highlights

Wait Until Dark is a tense thriller.” —NY World-Telegram & Sun
“Frederick Knott is a master craftsman…” —Women’s Wear Daily
“…a first rate shocker…the suspense drama we’ve long awaited eagerly.” —NY Post


A sinister con man, Roat, (Michael Rasberry) and two ex-convicts, Mike (Ray Simard) and Carlino (Eric Hedberg), are about to meet their match. They have traced the location of a mysterious doll, which they are much interested in, to the Greenwich Village apartment of Sam Hendrix (Marcus Allen Correia) and his blind wife, Susy (Renée Gándola and Eva Kvaas). Sam had apparently been persuaded by a strange woman to transport the doll across the Canadian border, not knowing that sewn inside were several grams of heroin. When the woman is murdered the situation becomes more urgent. The con man and his ex-convicts, through a cleverly constructed deception, convince Susy that the police (David Beck-Brown and Patty Fay) have implicated Sam in the woman’s murder, and the doll, which she believes is the key to his innocence, is evidence. She refuses to reveal its location, and with the help of a young neighbor, figures out she is the victim of a bizarre charade. A deadly game of cat and mouse ensues. Susy knows the only way to play fair is by her rules, so when darkness falls she turns off all the lights leaving both of them to maneuver in the dark until the game ends.
