Based on the play of the same name, Wait Until Dark is a suspense thriller directed by Terence Young and starring Audrey Hepburn and Alan Arkin. Hepburn is a young, recently blinded, woman named Susy whose husband Sam (Efrem Zimbalist, Jr.) unwittingly brings home a doll containing heroin after that was handed to him by a fellow passenger on his flight home. Unbeknownst to either of them, Sam has been followed home from the airport by the intended recipient of the drugs. After Sam leaves again on a business trip the following day, the drug dealer in question enlists the help of two associates to retrieve their property. They first attempt subterfuge, and then more direct means, as Susy grows suspicious of their motives. Soon a tense struggle ensues as the sadistic lead criminal Harry Rote (Alan Arkin) escalates his campaign of terror in a desperate attempt to retrieve his drugs.
