Wait Until Dark

Wine tasting water mark

Written by Frederick Knott

Directed by Penny Dilworth

A sinister con man, Roat, and two ex-convicts, Mike and Carlino, have traced the location of a mysterious doll to the Greenwich Village apartment of Sam Hendrix and his blind wife, Susy. Sam had apparently been persuaded by a strange woman to transport the doll across the Canadian border. 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 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 but Susy knows the only way to play fair is by her rules.
